Gateways Program Descriptions
The College Program offer incarcerated participants the opportunity to work with teachers and students from The Evergreen State College. Evergreen faculty and students travel to juvenile correctional facilities to work as co-learners with Green Hill students on a weekly basis during fall, winter, spring and summer quarters. Students read and discuss a common college level text, write response papers, and engage in a positive peer relationship.
Academic Mentoring Program
The Academic Mentoring Program (formerly known as the Challenge Program) offers participants one-on-one and small group peer mentoring and tutoring. It is a youth-driven and goal oriented program that pairs volunteers from Evergreen with young men at Green Hill. Together they develop a syllabus/work plan to meet once a week for an hour and a half. The Academic Mentoring Program is a way for young men to get additional support in the completion of their high school diploma, GED, post-incarceration plans, college class work and/or self study.
