GROUP SESSIONS

Once a week, mentors travel to their middle school sites to host a group session for mentees on a specific topic. WYSE mentors use an up-to-date and program-specific curriculum to plan and build weekly sessions that are tailored to the unique needs of our mentees. Using the multi-faceted WYSE curriculum as a guide, mentors engage their mentees in decision-making games, in-depth discussions and community action projects.
