About this course
The Teen Tutoring and Mentoring Program at the Neighborhood House gives high school students an opportunity to connect with younger students in the community. Our teens help our younger students with homework assignments and other learning tasks, are given opportunities to lead mini-workshops and are introduced to mentors from the community who guide our teens on their paths to success.
Mentoring at the Neighborhood House has become an important facet of the program. A mentor who helps, and more importantly, cares about our teens can serve as a role model and confidant as our teens try to balance growing responsibilities and “growing up” in our community. We connect our Teen Tutors and Mentors with professionals in the community who teach them valuable life lessons to help them navigate in the workforce.
In addition to workshops and speaking opportunities, we work alongside many of these companies to help our teens find jobs and internships. Building professional networks while in high school segues our teens to greater preparedness and instills confidence in our teens as they use lessons learned in interview skills and resume building and apply them to real-world experiences.
Our course begins with the first step for generating great user experiences: understanding what people do, think, say, and feel. In this module, you’ll learn how to keep an open mind while learning.
