Volunteering: Mentoring and Tutoring

Become a Volunteer Professional Mentor

The Harvard Bridge Program seeks professional mentors in Harvard departments for service employees participating in the internship program. The internship program provides a professional development opportunity for employees wishing to develop administrative and/or financial skills in a Harvard office environment. These unpaid internships are open to Bridge participants who have advanced communication and computer skills and who have demonstrated an excellent work ethic in their current jobs. For four hours a week, over the course of 16 weeks, interns are given specific projects that utilize and develop tangible office skills.

Become a Volunteer Tutor

Volunteer tutors work with Bridge students on a one-on-one basis according to the student's needs, for one to two hours a week. The needs of Bridge students vary greatly and may include help with business writing, college preparation, basic to advanced computer skills, ESOL homework assistance, conversation, pronunciation and help preparing for the U.S. Citizenship Test.
