“The South Anchorage High School Peer Mentorship team is proud to provide support for incoming and current freshman students to help ease their transition and create a pathway for success in high school. The mentorship program is self-funded through donations and fundraising efforts. The grant award will provide needed support for the desire to reach out to our minority and underserved populations, and any freshman student who demonstrates intensive disconnect, socially, emotionally and academically, from our school environment. The grant funds will be used to purchase incentives for participation in our gathering activities and in school-wide activities, for mentor training and education materials, and for program materials to use to work with the students.”
