WHAT: In partnership with Belmont Charter School in Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr students are matched with individual Belmont students as mentors during after school programming. Bryn Mawr students travel to the school as a group (transportation is provided by Civic Engagement) and meet with their mentees once a week during the academic year.
WHO: Bryn Mawr students are matched with their mentees based on grade preference and mutual interest. Mentees are students in grades 2 through 8.
WHEN: Mondays through Thursdays from 3:30—5:30 pm.
HOW: Mentors and mentees engage in interactive activities during their time together and spend the afternoons playing games, creating crafts, reading together, and getting to know one another.
YOU SHOULD KNOW: Becoming a mentor is a full year commitment and mentors are encouraged to stay with the program and their mentee for multiple years, if possible.
