DreamProjectVisit_2018_7871

On April 19, President Cauce visited Evergreen High School in the Highline School District to visit with University of Washington students who are mentors in the UW Dream Project. The UW Dream Project is a service learning course and post-secondary planning/college access program housed out of two UW departments: Undergraduate Academic Affairs and the College of Education. Through this program, mentors work in classrooms serving students in high schools with higher than average free and reduced lunch populations. Mentors use what they have learned during their EDUC 260 and/or EDUC 360 classes and personal experience to assist students through the college application process. Evergreen also hosts UW College and Career Readiness Assistant (CCRA) Interns. These are UW undergraduates who work with students in middle and high schools for 12 hours a week to support any school and/or district identified college and career readiness needs.
