Pre-lab is a time for mentors to meet with their course instructors, Mentor Coaches, and fellow mentors to discuss the upcoming evening. During this time, weekly readings are integrated into preparation for the night to come. In addition, Mentor Families take turns supervising the Early Arrival Room for youth who arrive at Campus Connections early.
Walk & Talk is a half hour walk that takes place immediately after youth arrive. Mentor families or groups of mentor-mentee pairs "tour the campus" on walks to different buildings across campus. This is a time for mentors to build relationships with their mentees as well as for mentees to get outside, get moving, and explore everything that a college campus has to offer.
Supporting School Success is one-on-one time that youth spend with their mentor to focus on academics/career. During this time mentees can work on anything from homework, study skills, and time management skills to building their résumés or filling out college applications. Other specialized academic and professional skill building activities are sometimes offered.
Nutritious, family-style dinner is provided through community partnerships and is served every week for the youth and mentors. Mentor Families eat together as a "family" to create a healthy dinner atmosphere for the youth.
Mentor Families take turns serving dinner and cleaning up to build a responsible and engaged Campus Connections community.
Each week our mentors take turns leading and participating in different activities designed for the youth. These activities are intentionally created to be pro-social and encourage positive recreation and interactions between everyone involved.
Activities change weekly and include a variety of sports, cooking, interactive games, cultural activities, arts and crafts, and more.
Post-Lab is a time for mentors to meet with their course instructor, Mentor Coach, and fellow mentors and debrief about the evening. This is an open forum to discuss success stories as well as possible concerns from the night and receive support from instructors and peers.
