In 2013, the Americorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) program at Mississippi State Universityâ€™s Maroon Volunteer Center (MVC) launched the Bulldog Mentors program.
Forty MSU students became tutors and mentors at community locations like Sally Kate Winters Family Services, Oktibbeha County schools and the Boys and Girls Club, logging a total of 212 mentoring and tutoring sessions. This year, 45 students are slated to become Bulldog Mentors.
