Mentoring

The mission of the UWANTGAME Mentoring Program is to pair high school student-athletes with consistent accountability partners who’ve already traveled the same paths. Overcoming sports injuries, juggling academic responsibilities with athletic responsibilities, enduring rigorous practices, managing confidence issues, and preparing for post-college life are all things that successful former college student-athletes have encountered during their careers, thus making them ideal mentors.

If high school student-athletes are determined to experience personal and professional success, they’ll need the focus and tools to get there. The UWG Mentoring Program provides a comprehensive three-year enrichment program (typically 10th – 12th grade) to youth who really want to advance to the next level. We follow the performance model used for developing well-rounded collegiate athletes and professional athletes with a heavy concentration on Character Development and Career Development.

Each year we create a thorough program that includes dynamic mentor/mentee team-building drills, career/image-building workshops, and exciting group events.

Additionally, UWG works with a network of professionals to create an internship opportunity for each UWG participant. During the spring semester, each student-athlete will be expected to attend an internship preparation event and complete a one-day internship.
