The Literacy Mentorship program requires a 5-10 hour weekly commitment from hired students. Students are expected to participate in after-school programs at Parkview Elementary two days per week, either on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Additional opportunities to mentor are available. Pay is $13-14/hour depending on training and experience.


All New Mexico Tech students who are in good standing are eligible for employment. Applicants must be able to pass a background check.

Most positions are supported through the Federal Work Study program. If you have not already filled out the FAFSA, please do so.

Mentor Training

Mentors enroll in Mentoring and Leadership, a weekly seminar that provides valuable mentor training (meets on Friday afternoons). Additional support is provided during individual monthly meetings with the Mentor Coordinator.
