Learning Communities

About the Program:

CfY’s Learning Communities program is designed to step past traditional mentoring practices and offer a Critical Mentoring experience that centers the young person. CfY centers youth as collaborators because they deserve to have their voice heard, their value is seen and respected, and their leadership activated.

This program follows the Academic Year (October – June). At the start of the year, mentors are assigned to Learning Communities: one that meets on Tuesdays & one that meets on Wednesdays. These Learning Communities remain together for the duration of the year. Weekly activities rotate between a one-on-one activity with your student, a small group activity (Family Groups), a mentor-only workshop, and a student-mentor workshop.
*As we navigate unfamiliar territory with the Covid-19 Pandemic, we may utilize digital platforms to continue meeting our students’ needs.

What is the Time Commitment?

CfY’s program runs throughout the school year from late September to mid-June. Participants dedicate 2-3 hours each week to Community for Youth activities.

To ensure success for our students and the program as a whole, mentors must honor this time commitment and be flexible.
