Mentor or Volunteer Information

What better way to know that you’ve learned your business and rhetoric curriculum than to have to teach it to someone else? Be a part of a dynamic team of individuals giving back to the community and reach Beyond Yourself to youth from under resourced schools in the Bay Area. Be a part of the defining principles of the Haas School of Business and the University of California, Berkeley by working in a program that promotes access, excellence and equity for all in our community.
