The purpose of this paper was to investigate the views of university students serving as mentors in high‐need high schools or community centers.

The participants were 49 students, primarily undergraduates across a range of liberal arts disciplines, who were participating in a university‐based service‐learning mentoring program for youth attending high‐poverty high schools.

The authors ask them:
(a) what activities they engaged in with mentees,
(b) how they benefited from the mentoring program, and
(c) how they perceived the program and what recommendations they had for change.
