College Avenue Mentors-in-Action is a mentoring program pairing Modesto High students with adult volunteers. A minimum of four hours a month and a one-year commitment will help a Modesto High teen achieve his/her potential in school and in life.
Most students are recruited from Modesto High’s AVID (Achievement via Individual Determination) program that attracts primarily first generation and financially disadvantaged youth with academic potential.
Mentors-in-Action is approaching its seventh year of providing one-on-one mentoring to interested students. Recent group events include the following: a visit with Mayor Marsh in his conference room and office, a tour of Cal State Stanislaus, and free or reduced price tickets to performances at the Gallo Arts Center.
A half-day training will be held Saturday, July 20, from 9:00 to 12:30. For more information or to sign up, please call or email Sharon Froba, 521-7265 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
