This session first describes a service-learning project in an English composition course: first-year university students mentor at-risk high school students in vital academic skills (study methods, time management, writing process, problem solving). The result: both university and high school students have improved academic success and survival. The second part of the session is interactive: via Skype teleconferencing, session attendees dialogue with university students on campus about the project’s effect on student success.
