JTOH Mentors


Journey Through Our Heritage mentors are dedicated Metropolitan State University work study students who offer high school and middle students the opportunity to engage in a wider range of community experiences. This allows  the exploration of knowledge and benefits that come from celebrating diversity and history. JTOH also participates in numerous community events and works with Non-Profit Organizations to create an inclusive community in Denver's Auraria Campus.
