Course: SOC 420CSL. Mentoring to Overcome Struggles and Inspire Courage (MOSAIC) (3)
The course will include the sociological examination of the issues facing at-risk youth in their personal relationships and in their school and community environments. In doing so, students explore how sociological concepts and theories apply in “real-world” situations. Furthermore, student mentors are paired with youth in the community who have been identified as at risk of academic failure and/or delinquent behavior. The mentoring relationship will be examined in the classroom and implemented in the field.
