Position Description:

The Academic Mentoring Program is a 3-year initiative that pairs 15 Yale University undergraduate mentors with 30 middle school students. The unique programmatic aspect is that mentoring relationships will be sustained for the duration of the initiative. The program identifies youth who have struggled academically at the start of middle school. The Academic Mentoring Program employs a triangular mentoring model that fosters an academic-centered relationship between the mentee, the mentor, and a peer student. Thus, healthy social development is a goal of the program even as the integrated curriculum focuses on language literacy and mathematical skill improvement.
