Mentoring Program at Avery Point

Due to a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut a mentoring partnership between UConn Avery Point and West Side Middle School exists. UConn Avery Point students mentor middle school students from West Side Middle School in Groton, CT for a year by meeting once a week with their middle school matches. The grant from the CFECT pays for books that the mentors use with their middle School matches and pays for a celebration at the end of the school year for all participants. During the school year 2013-2014, twenty-five UConn Avery Point students mentored West Side Middle School students.

The SSS program gave me the knowledge of what to expect in the academic year. I learned what life at UConn really was. It prepared me mentally and academically for the fall. I couldn’t ask for a better experience!
