Rachel Davies

As Rachel Davies prepared to complete her 2-year term as a college advisor last spring, the transition was eased by learning that Tenisha Alston (CLAS 2021), the new VCAC advisor arriving to work with her Charles City High School students, had served in YWLP as an undergrad at UVA. “I felt so much better leaving my students in her hands knowing that she's coming from this background,” Rachel said.

Claire Buckholz

YWLP offers young women a variety of ways to be involved with mentoring during their UVA years – and Claire Buckholz has served in ALL of them. Most students in YWLP serve as Big Sisters who mentor local middle school girls. Some of them return for another year in the program as mentoring group facilitators for a group of Big and Little Sisters. Others shift to supporting the program on the YWLP intern team working closely with our staff.
