Scope of work:

We hope that UNM Service Corps members will accomplish:

• Greater commitment to community service.
• Great understanding of the factors that create disparities.
• Exposure to non-traditional learning environments.

UNMSC members will assist with:

• Program development
• Tutoring/mentoring early adolescent and college students
• Program facilitation

Members will be housed at Africana AFAM studies but will facilitate programs at various locations in the Albuquerque community. They will capture their learning through video documentation, journaling, and training.
