Yuniverse Mentoring Program

This mentoring program founded by Yuniverse Foundation, is built to help students in middle school or high school. Sessions will be held in an outdoor environment until further notice. At Yuniverse Foundation our team is extremely excited to meet and motivate others!

2021 "Yuniverse + Camp"

Originally intended to be a basketball camp last summer, we decided to completely pivot it into a multiple week on going summer camp program. The camp agenda will cover project based learning, life principles, outdoor activities, field trips, and so much more.

The Yuniverse

The Yuniverse is more than just a foundation. There are multiple branches of Yuniverse where we focus on ideas that benefit the producer and the consumer. We utilize the model of having multiple branches to help people clarify the difference between which projects of ours are For-Profit and which are Non-Profit. Whether or not they are, our vision remains the same and we work to meet all our goals in order to serve the greater good.

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.
