Middle or High School Students

EBF provides a vital peer-to-peer connection for students of color. Middle school and high school students are linked with students enrolled in post-secondary education at IPFW. This linkage helps students with early planning, developing study skills, decision-making and time management.

This program puts students in a good position to obtain a high quality education and helps them to realize that learning is for a lifetime! Students also learn the importance of preparing early for college.

College level peer facilitators benefit also: EBF allow them the opportunity to develop leadership skills as well as enhance their communication skills. Peer facilitators also learn the value of mentoring.

There are two phases to the program: In Phase I, peer facilitators go out to area middle and high schools and/or community centers to meet with students of color during or after the school day.

In Phase II, students visit IPFW to gain a perspective of what university life is like.
