Calling all first-gen advocates and alumni

UAF’s first-gen program is recruiting volunteers to mentor first-generation students for the 2021-2022 academic year. If you were the first in your family to graduate from college, you can apply here.

The level of involvement is determined by your availability, and it can be as much of a time commitment as you and your mentee choose. We encourage routine check-ins and contacts for a successful relationship. You can learn more about the first-gen program here, or contact Claire Swanson at
