Ready to Become a Mentor?

PUMP It Up!, Pacific University’s Mentor Program, is a growing source of encouragement and positivity in local schools helping students to recognize and develop their unique potential. 

Mentors provide academic and social support, college and career planning, and creative outlets for mentee expression through music and writing. Our presence helps students from 4th to 12th grade get excited about education and their futures. 

Whatever you are passionate about, you can find a way to share it with local youth as a mentor. You'll discover that your mentees will inspire you more than you could imagine!

Mentors can fulfil their Civic Engagement Cornerstone requirement through mentoring, in addition to developing their social and professional skills. It's a great break from campus!  

PUMP it Up! is a well-rounded program that trains and supports its team of mentors so they can reflect, grow, and have fun as a group that's passionate about student achievement. 

You can join this force for good today! We are seeking new mentors to help us connect with more mentees during the 2014-2015 academic year.

To get involved, contact the PUMP it Up! Coordinator/AmeriCorps, Amy Smetana, at or stop by the Center for Civic Engagement in Scott 110.
