Information about University of Connecticut's Mentor Connection

UConn Mentor Connection is a summer camp for rising high school juniors and seniors, held on the campus of the University of Connecticut at Storrs. We believe teens’ interests, abilities, and motivation are very important talents. We also believe that it is essential for teen students to have opportunities to manifest their talents in high levels of creative productivity. Our work is based on the following additional beliefs:

  • Above average ability, creativity, and task commitment can be developed and nurtured.
  • Creative productivity results from the interaction of above average ability, creativity, and task commitment.
  • All social contexts, including school, the home, and the community, can influence the incidence of creative productivity. The university setting provides an especially promising context for creative productivity because first-hand inquiry is the core of almost all daily work.
  • Creative and productive individuals exist in every ethnic and cultural group and across all socioeconomic levels.
