The Redhawk Academic Mentoring Program (RAMP) aims to be a safe place for students to find support in others to build, grow, and strengthen skills and relationships. We support academic achievement and social-emotional well-being.
One-on-one mentoring is offered four days per week. Scholars (students grade 6-8) work with a Seattle University student individually once per week during a non-academic class period, where the focus is on building relationships and work to support their social emotional academic development.
Individual classroom support is a way for Seattle University students to support the social emotional academic growth of scholars in classroom settings. University students are placed in a classroom and support teachers in small group settings.
The 8th grade Change Makers Cohort is offered once per week. Scholars (students in 8th grade) meet as a cohort with SU mentors, where the focus is on community building, academic readiness, and group-identified interests. Mentors and scholars also work on the transition to high school. Once there, the cohort at Garfield and Franklin High School work with Change Makers Manager, Makaelah Smith, to foster the cohort and community.
RAMP After School provides programming for youth after school when possible throughout the year. Academic Mentors are asked to make a year-long commitment.
Seattle U students can also be classroom assistants during the school day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 8:55am-3:55pm and 8:55am-2:30pm on Wednesdays.
