MLP Big and Little Brother work together to climb the Poplar Ridge Challenge Course ladder

At the start of every fall semester, our Big and Little Brothers head to the Poplar Ridge Challenge Course to kick off their year together. In the Men's Leadership Project, UVA undergraduate men serve as big brothers to local middle school boys, building strong, respectful relationships that help them both grow as leaders in their schools, communities, and families.

Ten years ago, I was part of the inaugural Men’s Leadership Project at UVA. I didn’t realize it at the time, but joining MLP was one of the best decisions I made in college.

Through our Young Women Leaders Program and Men's Leadership Project, we give students the chance to give back to the community they call home during their years at UVA. These community-based mentoring programs pair undergraduate men and women with middle schoolers from the Charlottesville area. Pairing course work with group meetings, as well as one-on-one activities with their littles, our Big Brothers and Big Sisters grow as leaders while helping their littles realize their own leadership potential.

The Coffelt Public Service Award funds research-based community service projects intended to help both UVA students and youth in the Charlottesville community find meaning by engaging in a mutually beneficial collaboration. The award emphasizes both public service and research such that UVA students and non-profit partners learn from each other as they plan and execute annual projects to benefit children in the Charlottesville-area community.
