Middle School Programs

MathCorps UToledo

The Math Corps at UToledo Summer Camp and High School Bridge Program serves students in under-served communities in the Toledo area who, in the fall, will be entering the 7th or 8th grade. High school students entering the 10th or 11th grade serve as paid Teaching Assistants (TAs) and college students serve as (CIs). 

Each day the middle school students receive instruction from University faculty and enjoy a variety of learning activities led by the college and high school students. The high school TAs serve as natural role models for the middle school students, and engage in their own learning of both fundamental and advanced mathematics.

Girls in STEM, Together, we CHEM

This program aims to promote the participation of women, especially from underrepresented minorities to experience (probably for the first time) what chemistry is really about and what a chemistry education can offer for potential careers. This activity will be exclusively devoted to girls from underrepresented minorities attending high school (10-12 grade), within the local Public School network. The program will engage 10-20 students each summer for 6 weeks. The students will be involved once per week (3 hours per session) in chemistry projects related to separation science and linked to everyday life (e.g., “The chemistry of bubble tea,” “The chemistry of aromas,” “What chemistry is in my food,” “The chemistry of food dyes”).

Young Executive Scholars (Y.E.S.)

The University of Toledo’s Y.E.S. Program is a collaboration between UToledo’s Neff College of Business and Innovation and Jones Leadership Academy of Business (JLAB) in Toledo, Ohio. The program was established in 2017 to help cultivate the academic potential of underrepresented students, preparing them for success in higher education.

Each academic year, junior and senior students from JLAB participate in monthly workshops that cover leadership development, real-life business etiquette and college prep skills. These involve powerful mentorship relationships.

Participation in this program is life-changing. Breaking down barriers for students of color, this program connects local students to UToledo and the College of Business and Innovation. Participants gain access to academic and career opportunities thanks to Y.E.S.!

The goal would be for these students to then matriculate as full-time students here at UToledo upon graduation after their CCP experience.
