Outreach to Schools

U.Va.’s Community Relations Office is committed to helping local youth experience the vitality of the top-ranked public university in their backyard. Community Relations Office representatives can arrange for youth groups to tour the University. In addition, representatives can arrange for University of Virginia professors, researchers, administrators or coaches to speak at area schools.

The office’s major youth-outreach effort is the Day in the Life Program, through which U.Va. students mentor and tutor local youth.

Charlottesville Scholarship Program

The Charlottesville Community Scholarship Program provides financial help to deserving high school graduates and adults pursuing post-secondary education. The University of Virginia is a partner in this effort.
