Big Brothers Big Sisters: High School Students Preparing Middle Schoolers for High School Through a Mentoring Program

Action Research Project through Changemaker Project. We will create a mentoring program in which Gunn High School students go to Fletcher Middle School to co-teach SEL lessons to the middle school students. We will prepare them for the transition to high school while also establishing a positive relationship with them. Essentially, we hope to create the type of relationship where the younger students feel like they have an older buddy to look out for them. This will ease the transition to high school, because new freshmen who went through our program will know what to expect at Gunn while also already knowing a few upperclassmen.
