FAIRFIELD, Conn. – In 2001, a cohort of Sacred Heart University undergraduate students started working with local middle-schoolers who appeared to be at risk academically and were projected to abandon their education well before graduating high school. The goal was to intervene and put the youngsters on a path to a more educated and successful future. In 2016, SHU’s Jones-Zimmermann Academic Mentoring Program (AMP) is still going strong, celebrating its 15th year of ensuring that the students of Bridgeport’s John Winthrop School succeed in their studies and beyond. In that time, more than 100 SHU students have helped over 200 middle-schoolers.
