Mentoring Clarke County students

Maggie DeMaria, a fourth-year student from Athens and member of Arch Society, has applied her love for her hometown to help build a strong community within the University of Georgia. 

DeMaria entered college with a passion to serve. Through the Clarke County Mentor Program, she was able to volunteer with a local nonprofit and lead the corresponding student organization, Clarke County Mentors at UGA. 

The Clarke County Mentor Program is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports about 275 community volunteers to mentor students in the Clarke County School District. For more than 30 years, it has been a school-based program that pairs recommended students with mentors based on interests and experiences. About 150 of the total 275 mentors are UGA students.
