The U&I Mentoring program, in partnership with Quincy Public Schools, pairs recent immigrant middle-schoolers with high school mentors to support them in their academic progress, prepare for the transition to high school, and adapt to life in the U.S. with a healthy biculturalism. The goal of the program is to foster empowering youth relationships between recent immigrant mentees and their high school mentors. Entrusted with the unique responsibilities found in their role as mentors, our high school volunteers not only learn communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, they gain marketable capital that will be invaluable to their future.
