The Community Services Unit of Alum Rock Counseling Center aims to empower middle school and high school youth in East San Jose to avoid high-risk behaviors such as crime, drug use, adolescent pregnancy, and truancy. Students participate in school-based mentoring, life skills, academic tutoring, and case management services.
(1) Middle School Volunteer Opportunity:
Group Mentoring @ Ocala Middle School -- twenty-five 6th grade students receive after school tutoring and enrichment. Group Mentors lead educational activities and provide homework assistance as well as are assigned specific students to continually work with, in order to foster a relationship of trust and respect. Group Mentors will also aid with on-campus enrichments and off-campus field trips if interested or needed throughout the year.
(2) High School Volunteer Opportunity:
Group Mentoring @ Independence, Overfelt, and/or James Lick High School -- 5-10 high school students receive after school tutoring at the various school sites. Group Mentors provide homework assistance as well as build a relationship with the youth.
