Close the Gap is a 100% volunteer-based organization dedicated to creating a future of equitable opportunities for low-income students and professionals. Founded in 2018, Close the Gap focuses on mentorship, workshops, project-based learning, financial/resource assistance, and awarding scholarships.
At Close the Gap, your individuality is your strength. We are a small, diverse, nimble group of innovators, and trailblazers who are trying to leverage technology to solve the challenge of widening opportunity gaps that prevent low-income students from fulfilling their fullest potential due to their financial limitations.
Volunteering here gives you an opportunity to impact lives, invest in your growth and development, and be part of a fun and inclusive team. Together, we can build a future without opportunity gaps.

Close the Gap is looking for a team of mission-driven and empathetic mentors to collaborate on a nimble team that will be responsible primarily for engaging with our summer fellowship participants through weekly check-ins, virtual socials, Slack channel engagement, and workshops.
Our annual virtual summer fellowship program includes a diverse group of students who are first-generation and low-income students. We have an ambitious goal to scale our program participation by 5x, and your efforts will shape the future of our nonprofit organization, making a very tangible impact in these students’ lives, and future students for years to come.
This role will require a minimum commitment from the join date to late September 2022.
