Volunteer / Mentor

Volunteer as a mentor

We are always on the look out for new volunteers to join our mentoring program. If you would like to volunteer as a mentor, please fill out the form on the right and we’ll send you further information.

Mentoring participants involves being a “pen pal” to help a participant in their self-education. We help pair you with a mentee appropriate to your math level and interests.

We’re not just a tutoring organization. We’re in the business of introducing people into different lifestyles through math. We want mentors to help participants integrate with the math community, teching conventions of the math community, what to expect if wanting to apply for college etc.

If you'd like to volunteer in a capacity other than being a mentor, then please contact us at [email protected]
If volunteering to mentor participants (which involves essentially being a “pen pal” to help a participant in their math learning journey) please do include details about your background in mathematics and to what level of math ability you would feel comfortable mentoring. As next steps, we will send you introduction letters from participants, to try and match you with a mentee.
