Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Escondido, CA

Total Budget: $7,000

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Provide Educational Support for Valley High School Students


Tutoring and GED/HiSet support is provided through COMPACT for Valley High School students that have aged out of the High School System. All of the previous/exited Valley students are also able to come back if in need of work readiness training or job placement activities. Due to COVID, efforts are now conducted primarily via Zoom. Support is also given at The Achievement Center housed at the Escondido Salvation Army church.

This program serves a humanitarian purpose by taking youth out of poverty, violent and precarious situations and improving their welfare and ability to serve as better role models for their siblings and friends. As government grants are reduced for these types of programs, it becomes necessary for us to help fund these indispensable activities. Rotary of Escondido After 5 has supported the project for the last three years and remains committed to continue these efforts by also providing college scholarships for college bound students. This is an ongoing need and the project needs to be renewed every year.

The funds will help to provide support to underserved youth from Valley High School to obtain tutoring and testing for High School Equivalency certificates and college entrance. Job placement services, resumé creation and training in interviewing skills are also provided through this project.

Members of this club have committed to providing tutoring, job interview training, and mentoring services in addition to the funds provided for case management sessions, testing fees and other costs related to college and/or job placement. Support will be provided throughout the 2020/2021 Rotary year.
