Bridging Berkeley is a math mentoring program that matches UC Berkeley Work Study students and volunteers with Berkeley middle schoolers. Bridging Berkeley mentors inspire youth, particularly youth who will be first-generation college students, to explore math concepts through real-world problems. All of the middle school students are learning Common Core math, which emphasizes math models, flexible thinking, and multiple solutions. If you're a creative problem-solver who can support students in thinking big, apply now! Work Study mentors must be free at least 2 days/week at the following times and volunteers at least 1 day/week.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Public Service Center is committed to making our programs accessible to all students. If accommodations, including mobility accommodations, would make this program accessible to you, please call Rosa Ortega at 510-642-6772 anytime before Thursday, September 7.
