Planet Mentorship Program

The Planet Mentorship Program is a paid opportunity for students with diverse backgrounds to become change makers! This mentorship consists of a cohort of CSUSM students that use the arts and data visualization to illuminate how climate change disproportionately impacts marginalized communities. Through this program, students will also have the chance to explore pathways for their futures and learn useful skillsets, such as communicating complex themes and ideas, project development through collaboration, and creative problem-solving.
