What is the Mentor-Scholar Program?
Mentor-Scholar is an academic and social mentoring program that partners SUNY Oswego undergraduates and Oswego Middle School students through the academic year.  Mentoring pairs meet twice a week in the hour after school to work on homework and general academics while addressing social issues and having fun.  SUNY Oswego students participate in a two-credit hour GST 302 course through the fall and spring semesters addressing issues on mentoring, poverty and adolescent growth in the context of youth programming.
