The YSC Academy Mentorship Program forges connections among students and the larger school community, creating conditions that facilitate both academic success and personal growth. The Mentorship Program promotes meaningful relationships between staff and student-athletes that support the developmental and educational needs of adolescents.
Mentors act as the principal advocate for students as well as the primary link between YSC Academy’s online learning platform, home and school. Mentors serve as touchstones for student-athletes as they encounter a range of people and situations along the journey from orientation to graduation. Mentors make every effort to know student-athletes and their families well and to understand what the specific shared goals are for each individual.
Mentorship is scheduled daily during Breakfast and Morning Meeting, providing Mentors a regular opportunity to meet with their assigned student-athletes informally to discuss issues and provide follow up.
