Mentoring Programs

Spring applications open for Smile and Zag Study Buddies

For 20 years, the Center for Community Action and Service Learning (CCASL) at Gonzaga University has paired well-trained and passionate college students together with school youth from the Spokane community. Started in 1995 with the creation of Campus Kids at Stevens and Logan Elementary, CCASL's mentoring programs have expanded by leaps and bounds. Today, we run 6 distinct mentoring programs in 12 Spokane Public Schools, with approximately 400 Gonzaga students serving over 700 youth each year. Current programs include:

·         Eye to Eye

·         Campus Kids

·         Connections

·         Smile

·         GAME

·         Zag Study Buddies
