Gonzaga Athletes Mentoring for Excellence (GAME) is a group mentoring program that places teams of GU students with middle school youth, using group activities, athletics, and reflection as an avenue for relationship building and skill development. GAME mentors attend weekly programming (6:00-8:00pm Wednesday), visit their mentees at school weekly, and participate in Saturday activities once a semester.
Eye To Eye
Eye to Eye is the only national movement that pairs kids with learning disabilities (LD) and attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) disorder with similarly labeled college students. By utilizing an art-based curriculum, the mentors in our programs help kids with LD and ADHD build self-esteem as they embrace their abilities as different thinkers. Eye to Eye promotes self-advocacy and continues to strike out stigma so that those who are labeled can become their own best advocates. Eye to Eye mentors attend weekly programming from 3:30-5:00pm on Mondays.

Mentors and mentees participate in a variety of academic, recreational, and social activities. All Connections mentors attend weekly programming Wednesday from 3:30-5:30pm, visit their mentee once a week at school, and participate in quarterly Saturday activities.
