The Pipeline Project Alternative Spring Break 2018

The Pipeline Project is excited to announce that our applications for our 2018 Literacy Arts Alternative Spring Break Program are open! Looking for a meaningful way to spend your spring break? Look no further!

Pipeline recruits a group of UW undergraduates to volunteer on a Literacy Arts project with elementary, middle or high school kids in rural and tribal communities around Washington during spring break. The UW students are sent out in groups of 5 to 8 sites to help young students come up with an idea for a book, write a rough draft, edit the draft, and print and bind a single-signature book. The young students illustrate their published book and present it to the community at the end of the week.

Our application is open now and will close on Monday November 27th at 5:00pm! After that, we will review applications on a rolling admission. If you have any questions feel free to email us at pipeline. You can apply at http://expd.uw.edu/pipeline/alternative-spring-break/literacy-arts-asb/

Mentor high school women through UW’s Making Connections

Making Connections is a college readiness program for local high school girls that primarily targets first generation students and students from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds. We work with students from freshman to senior year by providing tutoring, mentoring, career exploration workshops, and assistance through the college application process. The program has a strong focus on STEM careers, and we encourage students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math. Women of color are dramatically underrepresented in STEM fields, and we hope to combat this by providing supportive and informational programming and guidance in STEM career exploration.

Our mentoring program matches our high school students with people who have been through high school and the college admissions process to provide support and guidance. We seek mentors who will…

• dedicate 4-6 hours a month toward building a relationship with their mentee
• offer support, advice, and guidance to their mentee while they explore higher education, apply for college, and gain knowledge about the STEM fields,
• support and motivate their mentee towards success in achieving their aspirations.
• attend a mandatory mentor orientation and training
• attend mentor-mentee socials with your mentee as well as other Making Connections workshops and activities
• provide monthly updates to program staff

Here is a link to the mentoring application:
