Civic Initiative Mentor UMass President's Office
The University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute (UMDI) Civic Initiative (CI) business unit is dedicated to promoting democracy through education in both the U.S. and abroad. Select groups of students, scholars, and professionals from around the world come to the UMass Amherst campus and travel to other regional sites for various short term exchange programs. Programs are designed for attendees to improve their leadership skills, increase their subject knowledge, and learn about U.S. culture. Programs are based on engaging participants through active learning, integrating classroom readings, lectures, and discussions with community-based, collaborative projects that offer practical, real-life experience. Mentors at UMDI CI provide administrative and organizational assistance to the program they are working. The position requires that mentors assist with the day-to-day functions of the program. This will include: transporting participants, supporting the academic director and program manager with administrative tasks and communication, and assisting with planning and organizing the schedule for each day. Mentors have a unique opportunity to work and live with participants from around the world. In addition to facilitating participants’ transition to the U.S and creating a positive environment for the participants during their time here, mentors are expected to be present and engaged with the participants throughout the course of the program. The mentors provide participants with the opportunity to learn more about American culture, norms, and discuss program content areas in an informal setting; similarly, mentors are able to learn about the participant’s home countries. This cross-cultural exchange represents an important aspect of the CI’s mission, by developing more substantive connections and understandings of different cultures, norms, and values.
