Women 4 Women Mentoring
EVC’s Women for Women Mentoring Program provides women at EVC with a supportive relationship to learn, grow, and achieve personal and educational success. The W4W program is administered by faculty in the Women’s Studies Department and is open to all female faculty, staff, and female students and allies.
W4W was created in 2011 by a core of dedicated students and faculty. A student who applies for the program is matched with a faculty or staff member who shares her interests and they set up their own time, place, and frequency of informal meetings.
Today over 20 faculty and staff members help new, continuing, and reentry students with a wide range of needs. These can include how to navigate the college system to choose a major, find financial aid and scholarships, and apply to a four year college, as well as achieving work-school-life balance and receiving emotional support, friendship, and encouragement.
Each fall the program begins the academic year with an informal brown bag Meet and Greet reception in EVC’s Womyn’s Center in RG-131 when we hear the stories of mentors and mentees. For more information on how you can join, contact Robin Hahn, Language Arts and Women’s Studies Instructor, at Robin.Hahn@evc.edu.
