Community Mentoring Programs

intern with our community mentoring programs

Want to work with one of our mentoring programs? You may want to be a mentor, or if the coming academic year isn't the right time for you to do that, take a look at these opportunities for you to play part in the logistics of the program by interning with either of these teams!

The Men's Leadership Project

In the Men's Leadership Project, UVA undergraduate men serve as big brothers to local middle school boys who want to succeed in school and have leadership potential, but need additional support to achieve their dreams. The big brothers and little brothers build strong, respectful relationships that help them both to grow as leaders in their schools, communities, and families.

TYPICAL ACTIVITIES FOR INTERNS ON THIS TEAM:
Interns with this team work with MLP staff on recruitment for incoming Bigs, assist with day-to-day logistics of the program, and help plan annual service events for the Bigs and Littles.

The Young Women Leaders Program

The Young Women Leaders Program is a community-based mentoring program that pairs UVA undergraduate women with middle school girls from the Charlottesville area. By combining one-on-one mentoring with group activities that address girls' sense of self, scholastic achievement, body image, peer relationships, and healthy decision-making, YWLP helps empower middle school girls as leaders in their schools and communities. 

TYPICAL ACTIVITIES FOR INTERNS ON THIS TEAM:
