Description

The Amplifying Black Voices Critical Mentorship Program (ABV) is a partnership between UNLV's College of Education, the Southern Nevada Black Educators Initiative, Code Switch, and the Center for Multicultural Education created to support and retain the college's Black students while offering a safe, affirming and free space for them to thrive. 

About the ABV Program

ABV mentors are licensed Clark County School District educators who have demonstrated a strong commitment to racial equity, healing, and Black liberation. Students will select a mentor they feel is best suited for their personal, academic and professional goals. In addition to the ABV mentor course, students and mentors will connect at least four times throughout the semester (either in person or virtually) to discuss goals, challenges, and opportunities. 

Learn more about the program and sign up and select a mentor before the event.

About the Event

Student mentees will meet their mentors and begin to get to know each other. You'll discuss your goals and aspirations as well as the challenges ahead as a Black student and future educator.
