Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
Bruin Partners is a one-on-one tutoring and mentoring project that focuses on empowering the youth of Mar Vista. We pair a UCLA undergraduate with a single sixth grader from Marina Del Rey Middle school for an entire year, in hopes that they will build a strong bond that will continue throughout the years. Site visits consist of one hour of tutoring and other academic endeavors and one hour of a planned activity. These activities range from sports to arts and crafts. Once a quarter, Bruin Partners goes on a field trip to further cultivate a friendship between the mentor and mentee pairs. In past field trips we have gone to places such as the California Science Center, Paramount Ranch, and the LA Zoo. Due to budget cuts, Bruin Partners is now the only after school program at Marina Del Rey Middle School. To counter this devastating occurrence, Bruin Partners has added a new component to our program called Homework Corner. This is a drop-in tutoring service for seventh and eighth graders; we also encourage sixth graders on the wait list to participate in Homework Corner until they can be paired with a mentor. Homework Corner is the ideal place for a volunteer who is not comfortable mentoring but would still like to help. Homework Corner takes place in a classroom next door to the one-on-one mentoring Monday through Thursdays winter and spring quarter. In order to further the bond between mentor and mentee, Bruin Partners takes a fieldtrip once a quarter, to bring the mentor from the level of an older tutor to an actual friend from the perspective of the students. Last year, Bruin Partner's fieldtrips included a chance to attend a UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl for
