Making Friends in High School

DuBois Scholars Mentor Middle School Students

On a Saturday in February, 2008, the W.E.B. DuBois Society hosted an event at Spelman College that featured Step UP Workshops for middle school students. The workshops are part of a 20-week enrichment program of seminars and field trips. The Step UP Workshops are conducted by the high school students, know as DuBois Scholars, who serve in a mentoring role to middle school students and were the workshop leaders.
