Bruin Partners

Bruin Partners Logo

Bruin Partners is a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring program that serves the students at JFK High School, Phoenix Continuation High School, and Whitman Continuation High School. For middle school sites, we pair a UCLA volunteer with a middle school student with the goal that they will build a strong relationship that will continue throughout the mentee's middle school career, and influence the mentee's plans and decisions regarding higher education while also providing academic and character support. In our High School Component, we focus on college preparation with SAT and ACT tutoring and curriculum assistance, along with guidance regarding financial aid resources and college applications. Site visits entail one hour of tutoring (e.g. homework help and supplemental learning activities) in order to help the student with anything they're struggling with academically, or one hour of a planned activity. These activities include sports, arts and crafts, group discussions, games and science experiments, in order to help facilitate communication between the mentee/mentor pairs and foster a more interpersonal relationship, as well as expose our mentees to an array of enriching experiences.
