The first week of school brings with it many things. For Niagara University and Niagara Falls High School, the 2016-2017 academic year will begin with a new mentoring program.
Announced today, the Big Eagle Little Eagle program will assist Niagara Falls High School students in preparing to make the transition to college, through mentoring from Niagara University students. This guidance will occur through social interactions and both active and passive activities aimed to have a positive impact on all participants.
Specifically, Niagara University students will mentor Niagara Falls High School students to help them develop communication skills, team-building, research and debating techniques, college- and career-readiness skills, prepare for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and the college entrance test of American College Testing (ACT), and advocate for positive social change. Building capacity for service says #IamVincent.
