https://csmentors.berkeley.edu/. CSM provides adjunct sections for UC Berkeley CS classes. I volunteered as a mentor for CSM for CS 70 for three semesters. Later I was a co-coordinator, managing logistics and helping mentors succeed teaching their sections, including sections for underrepresented students in CS.
