Much of the literature concerning collegiate mentorship has focused on faculty and staff mentorship of students (e.g., Baker & Maguire, 2005; Kram, 1988). This chapter focuses on both informal and formal mentorship (e.g., Allen & Eby, 2008) of undergraduate and graduate students who participate in United Future Leaders (UFL), a university outreach program that develops leadership competencies among elementary and middle school youth. Throughout this model, mentorship occurs across academic disciplines in both one-on-one and group settings. In addition, the mentoring connection between professional development and mentoring activities illustrate the intentional programming role that mentorship plays at every level of program delivery. Lessons learned highlight the scaling-up of programming and the intentionality of mentoring in outreach programs are discussed.
