Focus Forward is a school-based mentoring program that strives to enrich the lives of students in our community. We match middle-school and high-school students from participating school districts with trained and supported undergraduate mentors, under the supervision of SUNY Oswego professional staff, who help provide the academic and social support necessary for each student to achieve their full potential.
Mentors provide academic tutoring and social support to district-identified "opportunity" students through personalized one-to-one or one-to-two relationships. You will help mentees develop effective study habits and interpersonal skills for school and life success. Mentors also assist in creating academic goals and providing the necessary support to see their mentees achieve them.
