Bridging Berkeley

Bridging Berkeley is a math mentoring program that matches UC Berkeley work-study students and volunteers with Berkeley middle school youth, especially those who will be first-generation college students. The middle schools have all transitioned to 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, join us! Work-study mentors must be free at least two days per week at the listed program times and volunteers must be free at least one day per week.

Bridging Berkeley


Bridging Berkeley teams offer math homework help and support at Berkeley public middle schools. Bridging Berkeley is supported by a City of Berkeley Youth Services grant and a charitable donation from the Bayer Corporation.
