ACT-SO’s success is due largely to the dedication and commitment of the community to serve as mentors, coaches, judges and volunteers. ACT-SO Columbia is in need of adults in the “Columbia Village” to assist us in the areas listed below. You can tailor your involvement to suit your schedule.

  • General Volunteers assist our team and students using their gifts to enrich the overall ACT-SO experience.
  • Mentors / Coaches work with students (individually and/or in group settings) on their projects once a week over an academic year in preparation for the local ACT-SO Columbia competition.
  • Competition Judges are qualified professionals with appropriate experience who adjudicate students work at the local ACT-SO Columbia competition.
