If you're interested in volunteering as a mentor with the Florida Student News Watch, feel free to reach out. We'd love to hear from you!


We are looking for a diverse range of mentors - including disability status, sexuality, ethnicity, religion and medium of reporting. The only requirement for mentors is to meet at least once per month with a student if partnered with a member of the News Watch. For a semester, this is three (3) meetings.
