High School Tutoring and Mentoring
In collaboration with The Samueli Academy in Santa Ana, H2Outreach members volunteer as after-school tutors/mentors once a week. This program allows high school students to connect with and learn from college and graduate students, while the tutors gain valuable teaching and volunteer experience. If you are interested in tutoring high school students with H2Outreach, please contact us at email@example.com.
In conjunction with Global Connect at UCI, H2Outreach members developed high school lectures and activities focusing on the global water crisis. H2Outreach members gave presentations on the material in introductory globalization classes at three local high schools.
