Since 1999 Western Oregon University has partnered with Talmadge Middle School to foster positive mentoring relationships. January through June, Western Oregon undergraduates mentor Talmadge students. The mentoring relationship focuses on developing skills for academic success, emotional and social growth, and provides a forum for developing problem solving approaches to student concerns and issues. Mentors are positive role models, good listeners, advocates and guides for Talmadge students.
