This account reflects my partnership with the Undocumented Student Resource Center (USRC) at San Jose State University. As an applied anthropology graduate student, my collaboration with USRC focused on developing a student-driven mentoring program to foster a sense of belonging for undocumented students and a pathway for future success. I interviewed a small number of self-identified undocumented students and mentored four USRC interns during Spring 2021. In this article, I present students’ perceptions of USRC, their understandings of mentoring, and their ideas regarding the programming that the center should provide. I conclude by sharing some of the outcomes of my internship with USRC and the current state of the mentoring program.
