Collegiate Mentoring Program - Now Enrolling

Looking for a great way to get your kids excited about college? Check out the Collegiate Mentoring Program at Neighborhood House Community Center!

Mentees will be matched with a UW student with similar interests. Our mentors tutor youth in school subjects in an individual and personal manor, as well as present children with a role model who attends college. We strongly encourage youth to think about their higher education and future. Mentoring groups meet twice a week throughout the academic year to work on homework and go on field trips to educational places on the UW campus. Our mentors are UW Madison students, which gives their mentees full access to campus! They go on field trips every week to different UW Madison locations such as Camp Randall, the Geology Museum, the Physics Museum, the Kohl Center, and many more! This program is open to students ages 7-17.
