UW Dream Project: EDUC 260/369 mentoring opportunity

Dear UW Student,

As you plan out your classes for Fall Quarter, we would like to invite you to join the University of Washington Dream Project! The UW Dream Project is a student-run program that assists low-income and first-generation high school students in attaining higher education and strives to raise awareness among university students about the issues of educational opportunity and mobility.

We would love to have you join this fall as we continue to work with high school seniors as they write personal statements, complete college applications, prepare for the SAT/ACT and apply for scholarships. As a UW student, this should all sound familiar as you have went through this process first-hand! Your experiences are valuable, and can be used to support high school students throughout King County.

What’s in it for you?

  • Learn about educational access, mentoring strategies, and social justice.

  • 2 credits (1 credit of EDUC 260, lecture; 1 credit of EDUC 369, high school visit)

  • I&S credit for EDUC 260, Service Learning (S) credit for both EDUC 260 and 369

  • Leadership opportunities ranging from leading lectures to running events for hundreds of people

  • Eligibility for PAID part time student jobs as College & Career Readiness Assistants after 3 quarters in the Dream Project

  • Transportation to the high schools is provided!

  • FREE COFFEE every week at the earliest morning visits

  • A great way to make new friends and be part of a community within the UW!

How to register:

There are two ways to get involved. For credit, register for EDUC 260 and EDUC 369 on your UW registration. To volunteer without earning credit, learn more at dreamproject.org/join. Schools that especially need more mentors include Kent-Meridian (EDUC 369 Q), Chief Sealth (EDUC 369 B), HS3 (EDUC 369 J), and Renton (EDUC 369 F).

If you have any questions, please email us at uwdreamproject or stop by the Dream Project Center in Mary Gates 274.

Thank you,

UW Dream Project
