WE SERVE UNDER RESOURCES HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

COMMITTED PROGRAM DIRECTORS:

The program directors at EYF aim to facilitate effective and productive programing for both our student participants and their mentors. Program directors are experienced in student program facilitation and educational enrichment for both exemplary students and students that are situated in areas statistically shown to have low high school performances as well as accompanied low college retention rates.

EXEMPLARY VOLUNTEER MENTORS:

EYF student mentors are selected from an array of applicants that are affiliated with, or are, students from various high performance universities in the Houston area. Volunteer mentors typically show an aptitude for both academic excellence and community enrichment. Volunteer mentors are expected to display an interest in forming long term mentor-mentee relationships with students and a regular weekly commitment. Additionally EYF mentors possess leadership skills, team building capabilities, and personable qualities that allow for smooth relationship assembly. EYF volunteer mentors are expected to report to program directors and guide student participants through their EYF experience.

PASSIONATE STUDENTS:

EYF would not exist without the presence of a need for such a program to serve dedicated and deserving high school students. EYF program participants consist of high school students selected from an array of applicants. They are students that display academic proficiencies, abilities, and strengths that could be further enhanced through participation with EYF. EYF students are expected to attend all, if not a majority, of EYF sessions and programming. EYF students are expected to work with their volunteer mentors in order to complete program tasks and goals.
