Apply to be a Mentor for Project Manus


Project Manus Needs You!

Poster for Manus Mentor recruitment

Do you like to make stuff? Do you like teaching others to make stuff?

We are now training fall Manus Mentors for Project Manus!

We are looking for enthusiastic students, faculty and staff who want to help create vibrant making culture in The Deep and Metropolis makerspaces. Advanced making skills are not required, but you should have some experience working in shops and using tools. Students who stay engaged over time will both broaden their capabilities and develop a specialty.

Our mentors train hundreds of first year students in MakerLodge and many other MIT students, faculty, and staff in The Deep and Metropolis! Each Mentor commits 4 hours every week – 2 hours running training and 2 hours keeping the shop open, helping other students and performing basic shop maintenance tasks.

Mentors receive:

  • Subsidized materials for their own projects
  • Priority access to advanced training and making-related classes run by Project Manus
  • Access to our makerspaces 24/7 outside of trainings to work on their own projects
