Mentor a Social Work Student

Would you like to help a student transition into their future career?

Would you like to reaffirm your passion for the field of social work and human services?

The Mentor Program in the Portland State University School of Social Work pairs professionals in the community with current PSU social work students to enhance students’ skills, develop their job search network, and clarify their career goals.

Mentors help students:

  • observe an authentic work environment
  • learn about the range of career paths available in the profession
  • develop confidence interacting with the social work and human services community
Most mentors meet with their students face-to-face 3-5 times and more frequently via email and phone during this September to June mentorship engagement.
