Mission Statement

East Sac Mentoring was created in order to involve local businesses in a greater capacity in the education of our County’s students; with mentors coaching students on not only what their chosen career entails but also about expectations and various experiences that they have had transitioning into the working world.

Description

Having graduates find stable, meaningful work is a goal of many communities, including our own. However East Sac County Community School District (East Sac County CSD) has reason even greater than most in order to produce graduates who have vocational insights for their future. Historically, nearly half of students in attendance each year receive reduced or free lunches, meaning that these students are living in a financial situation whereby they lack adequate food and nutrition. While acceptance into the nutritional program is not solely based on income, gross income plays a large part. In the case of a family of 4 to be considered living in poverty in 2019 for example, their gross income needs to be at or below $25,750 a year. East Sac Mentoring predicts that further education for high school students as to current job demands, trends and educational requirements will help the districts students acquire jobs suited to them sooner. Informing students about jobs available in the county and the region has the potential to have a monumental impact in the communities that support East Sac County CSD and the region as a whole.
