Woodrow Wilson tutoring/art program info sessions

From Sara Shor and Emma Zoloth ’10

If you’re interested in volunteering as a tutor/mentor for local middle school students The Woodrow Wilson Tutoring Partnership provides an opportunity for Wesleyan students to be matched with two 7th or 8th graders and form a bond across the middle school-college gap. The tutors not only provide academic support for the tutees but also act as a mentor and friend. This program is great for athletes and people with afternoon commitments because we go to the middle school during the day.

This intervention program serves middle school students who are struggling academically, at risk of retention, and/or in need of general and academic support. Students are identified by their team of teachers and matched one-on-one with Wesleyan students for in-school tutoring. With a major focus on building relationships across the college-middle school gap, tutors assist students with schoolwork, work to identify major issues affecting students motivation, and serve as a general support for building confidence and changing academic performance.

And from Rosemary Pierson ’12:

Woodrow Wilson Afterschool Art Program Info Session

The Woodrow Wilson After School Experiential Arts Initiative works to provide middle school students a biweekly forum for personal and communal expression through a variety of artistic mediums. The curriculum of the program is generally tailored to its participants’ interests, but often includes both short term arts and crafts projects, as well as semester-long projects in painting, photography.

We are looking for volunteers to facilitate the forum. Volunteers can dictate their level of involvement, going to the middle school any where from once a month to twice a week.
