The mentoring program empowers middle and early high school students of Pelham Apartments Our House Recreation Center to maximize their academic potential. Framingham State University student mentors act as academic role models who support and encourage their mentees to strive for academic and personal success. The main focus of this program is to encourage the Pelham students to reach their potential and recognize higher education as a possibility for their futures.
Framingham State students will be matched with a small group of students visiting from Our House Recreation Center for weekly one-hour mentoring sessions. All of the students are residents of the Pelham Apartments, a public housing complex in Framingham. These students have multiple challenges both in and out of the school environment for a host of reasons. This partnership ensures the students are able to access homework help and are exposed to positive role models through one-on-one mentoring. Mentors will assist mentees on issues related to their individual academic needs and goals.
