Our mentorship program, First-Gentorship, is First To Go's initiative to promote the growth and further the support of UCLA's first-generation undergraduate and graduate students. The program runs throughout the academic school year, consisting of events and activities for both mentees and mentors to interact.
As a mentor, students get the opportunity to give back to their community by fostering the growth of students following in their footsteps.
The purpose of the mentorship program is to provide holistic support for first-gen students navigating their professional, academic, and personal lives at UCLA. The areas of support are in: academic success, career readiness, financial wellness, personal development, and institutional navigation.
- Academic Success
- Career Readiness
