Penn Manor School District
Lancaster, PA
“Penn Manor School District is partnering with Children Deserve a Chance Foundation’s Attollo program for a pre-college leadership initiative for 5th and 6th grade students of color, which includes a mentor program and quarterly exposure to county leaders and their professions. Concurrently, Attollo staff will provide Diversity, Equity, Inclusion training for teachers. The goals are to create a culture of excellence among students of color that they take with them as they transition to middle school and to engage students when they are young and to keep them on the track of career and growth options throughout their educational career.”
