Nazareth College Connection

COVID-19 has challenged not only the Nazareth community, but the Rochester community as well. This year, we are adjusting our Nazareth College Connection experience to support our community partner Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection in virtual ways that continue to connect Naz mentors with youth and encourage school success and post-secondary education.

Typcially, Wednesdays between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. during the fall and spring college terms, Rochester City School District high school students in the Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection program come to the Nazareth campus for tutoring and to experience college life. 

Nazareth students, staff and faculty are needed to provide academic support, to act as a mentor, and to get students prepared and excited to attend college.

To learn more, please attend our upcoming information session:
