Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (W.Y.S.E.)
Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE) is a curriculum-based mentorship program that pairs college women with middle school girls in under-served communities. WYSE was founded at UCLA in 1992, and has grown to include 12 branches across the country. Our mission is to empower young girls from all walks of life and aid in their development into strong and self confident women. At our weekly sites, mentors and mentees discuss issues like body image, healthy relationships, college planning and future options, and women's' health. WYSE at UCLA currently works at two sites: Mark Twain Middle School in Venice and Sepulveda Middle School in North Hills. Our program consists of weekly curriculum-based group sessions, one-on-one mentoring, and special events.
