Virginia Commonwealth University has honored the Villa's Career and Transition Services and VCU's Department of Focused Inquiry with the Currents of Change Award
for their partnership in peer mentoring. The award was presented by VCU's Council for Community Engagement on May 4, 2016.
In the first two years of the program, 43 VCU students provided more than 1,600 hours of service to the Villa! In turn, VCU students benefited from working with young people with a range of abilities and life experiences. Many thanks to these mentors for forming sustained relationships with our middle and high school students, and for introducing them to a welcoming college community.
