UCMe XL - Pasifika Outreach Programme
Supporting future leaders
UC is committed to offering a wide range of services to assist Pasifika students in Canterbury. UCMe XL was launched to support to Pasifika students in secondary schools throughout the Canterbury region as they prepare to sit NCEA exams. Since its inception in 2011, almost 600 students have had the opportunity to spend time on campus with mentors, while receiving tutoring to help ensure their academic success.
All costs, including transportation and kai, are covered by the generosity of donors like yourself. This programme is empowering more Pasifika students to enrol at University and getting the word out about all of the community support available to them once they arrive on campus as UC students.
Current UC Student, Etelani Pouili, is studying towards a Bachelor of Arts. Etelani says, “UCMeXL helped me progress through assessments and internals. Mentors were always there willing to help.”
Your gift can inspire more Pasifika students to dream big.
