WYSE Mentee of the Month is an exciting, brand new initiative for WYSE mentees participating in virtual sessions during the 2020 - 2021 program year. Recognition of mentees in the virtual space aims to promote success and engagement in activities among mentees both inside and outside of session at WYSE.

About the WYSE Branch
Throughout the year for 8 weeks per quarter, the mentors at UCLA WYSE act as a vital support system for girls from our partner schools at Mark Twain Middle School and Francisco Sepulveda Middle School. The LAUSD approved WYSE national curriculum includes topics geared towards improving self-esteem, body image, relationships, and critical thinking, which will inspire the students to become leaders and create positive change within their own communities. Each weekly site typically consists of icebreakers and one-on-one activities and discussion, followed by a group discussion of the week’s topic.

We look forward to December, where we'll spotlight a new mentee of the month from another WYSE branch.
