A group of UTC Sociology students recently began a mentorship program with 9th and 10th grade students at Chattanooga Girl’s Leadership Academy (CGLA). The students, from a Sociology of Education course taught by Dr. Shela Van Ness, were put through background checks and training to receive certification for the program. Each UTC student mentor was paired with one student from CGLA.
