This program is designed to bring middle school and high school students from New Haven, Bridgeport, Hartford and East Hartford public schools to campus during each semester. Students will participate in motivational, educational, cultural, and recreational experiences.
UConn and the CT Training School are participating in a mentor/mentee partnership for the support of youthful offenders who are incarcerated in two residential facilities. The training school is located in Middletown, CT and Journey House is located on the grounds of Nachaug Hospital in Willimantic, CT. Students from Journey House visit PA2SS, the peer mentoring program at the African American Cultural Center, to share their stories and meet with students. Representatives from the Center travel to Journey House several times a semester to work with the residents.
