This important initiative for First-Generation students at the College draws on the Pensby Fellowship of Yeidaly Mejia '19 and Praxis coursework by Yeidaly and Alex Berndt '19. Each year, first-generation students can apply to participate and be connected with a mentor. The program aims to provide support, resources, community and career guidance to its participants.
