Mentor Program 
The Mentor Program; also known as The Washington/Oregon Campus Compact Americorps Retention Project is a program that recruits EvCC students as mentors and places them with junior high and Senior high school students.

This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to your community and to help young students succeed.
