Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) - Mentorship Program
Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) is a national mentorship organization that has chapters at several universities across the nation. Each chapter has a year long program where a college mentor is paired with a middle school girl. Discussions, activities and life-skill games are part of the weekly meetings.
The goal of these meetings is to first build a trustful bond between the mentors and the mentees. Eventually, WYSE aims to become a positive influence in the lives of the mentees in order to empower them to become leaders in society. The mission of WYSE is to empower young girls from all walks of life and aid in their development into strong and self confident women.
UCLA WYSE is one of several WYSE chapters that are present across the United States. WYSE itself is a national mentorship organization. WYSE has its own curriculum, specific to each chapter as well as a one-on-one mentorship program.
