Youth Support Program - YSP
The Youth Support Program's mission is to provide a nurturing environment where students at Willard Middle School in Berkeley thrive academically, socially, and behaviorally. The purpose of the program is to provide mentoring and academic support to students who are struggling in school. This is accomplished by matching participants one-on-one with UC Berkeley students. Through safe, fun activities students develop cultural sensitivity, improve their leadership skills and self-esteem, and learn civic responsibility.
