Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) - Mentorship Program
Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) is a mentorship program designed to empower young girls to make better decisions. WYSE mentors are UCLA students who teach middle school girls at Mark Twain Middle School about sex and our bodies, self-esteem, domestic violence, gender and stereotypes, and gang violence. UCLA mentors teach these topics via interactive workshops.
WYSE started at UCLA, and it has since grown to 13 chapters at universities across the nation. Last year, the project was inactive. However, this year the USAC Community Service Commission, the umbrella organization for this project, is aiming to start up this much-needed project once again. If you are interested in becoming a leader to help re-initiate the project, or just would like to volunteer, WYSE will be holding info sessions Monday February 27, and Tuesday February 28 at 5:30 pm in 313 Kerckhoff Hall.
Please attend one of these sessions and feel free to email Anastasia Lopez at email@example.com.
