Marist Student Involvement
The Liberty Partnerships Programs (LPP) depends on Marist students to help provide its comprehensive services. Students serve as interns, tutors, or mentors and are either paid through College Work-Study funds or volunteer their time. The majority of student workers are majoring in education, psychology, or social work; however, LPP accepts all majors. In recent surveys, 100% of tutors and mentors indicated that working for the program enhanced their professional development. To apply for a tutor or mentor position with LPP, Marist students need to complete the online application. Students interested in an internship should contact Susan Repko, LPP Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 454-4199.
Marist clubs are also involved with LPP and provide activities on campus or in the schools. The Dance Club, Alfa Sigma Tau, and athletes are offering activities to LPP students this year. The Debate and Advocacy Society is providing skill-building sessions during Mentoring at Marist to enhance the students' speaking and critical thinking skills. Teachers of Tomorrow assists the LPP staff in recruiting tutors and mentors.
