Youth Mentorship Program
Organized by: Elijah Washington
More than half the students in Yonkers Public Schools are aware of the college process before senior year of high school. More than half is also picked on or bullied by upper classmen because they have no friends in school or they don't know how to get to the cafeteria. This program will prevent that from happening by having freshmen partnered up with junior and seniors in high school and be there first friend/ mentor. They will take them to class, show them there locker, and much more. In addition, they will be attending local college and businesses trips to give them an early experience of there future.
