WHO WE ARE:
WYSE is a year-long, curriculum-based mentorship program that partners self-identified college womxn with middle school girls. Each mentor is paired with one middle school mentee for the entire academic year. Once a week, mentors travel (now over Zoom) to their middle school sites to host a group session for mentees on topics such as identity, healthy relationships, mental health, and sex education.

WYSE AT UCLA PRE COVID:
WYSE runs for the academic year, beginning in the first weeks of Fall Quarter and ending the last week of Spring Quarter. Sessions are either on Mondays from 11:50 pm - 2:00 pm or Wednesdays from 11:50 pm - 2:00 pm, with mandatory reflection meetings on Mondays from 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Mentors and mentees are paired together early Fall Quarter, and once paired, will have the whole year to bond. A field trip will also be taking place once per quarter.

Transportation is provided free of cost and is wheelchair accessible.

In order to form a more cooperative and cohesive group of mentors, we will have quarterly training workshops as well as bonding events throughout the year to help build and strengthen relationships among mentors. In addition to enriching mentees’ experiences, WYSE aims to help our mentors by aiding in the development of leadership, communication, and teamwork skills as well as life-long networks and friendships.
