Our

mission

At Yuniverse Foundation it is our mission to empower the youth to navigate the constantly changing world. We help kids develop their unique blend of talents through our programs, events, and camps. All kids don't have equal resources, but they all have an equal opportunity to impact lives and change the world. We want to enable kids to grow into the best version of themselves and become ready to take advantage of the many opportunities they encounter on their journey through school, extra-curricular activities, and into life after school. Yu can make a difference - support youth of the universe!

YUniverse mentoring program

Yuniverse Foundation is offering a new mentoring program for high school and middle school students in the South Lakes High School and Herndon High School pyramid 

Students from 7th-12th grade can sign up for a mentor to meet in person, socially distanced, for 45 minutes every other week at an outdoor covered location in Reston or Herndon. For the weeks in between in-person meetings, students and mentors will connect on the phone for a 15 minute check-in call.

Mentors are either adults in the community or 11th-12th grade students from South Lakes or Herndon high school. Students in 11th-12th grade students interested in mentoring would be assigned as mentors to younger students, in 7th-9th grades.

After learning a student’s academic goals, students would continue to meet with their mentor on a biweekly basis to talk about school and other topics of interest. With regard to school, mentors can help talk through areas where a student may need some additional help to meet their goals, and then collaborate on ways to address them over time. Mentors can also help students talk through post-high school plans, extra-curricular activities and other interests a student might be interested in sharing.
