This course will begin by highlighting the research related to the school-to-prison pipeline, including exploring how exclusionary practices impact the schooling experiences of students.  The presenters will share their experience in developing an intensive mentoring program designed to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline.  The details of the mentoring program will be shared with participants, including strategies for supporting mentors, mentees, families, and teachers as well as strategies for developing university-school partnerships.  Participants will have the opportunity for group discussions to explore ways that they could utilize mentoring as a strategy for intervening in the school to prison pipeline.
