Collegiate Mentoring Program
Provided byNeighborhood House Community Center
The Collegiate Mentoring Program pairs a local youth age 7-18 with a college student. The mentoring pair will meet for one hour twice a week throughout the academic year. Half of that time will be spent doing homework and building academics, and the other half of the time will be spent building a positive relationship. Together, the mentor and mentee will work on the youth's homework, bake treats, discuss life, play games, make art, and walk to nearby Madison attractions including parks, the zoo, museums, and the UW campus.
As college students, our mentors are strong role models and advocates for higher education. Mentoring pairs are encouraged to visit the UW campus often, helping the youth to think about their future and to feel more comfortable in a collegiate setting.
