PASS - AmeriCorps
About the PASS AmeriCorps Program...
PASS (Promoting Achievement and Student Success) is a mentoring, tutoring, leadership program to engage and motivate students to improve their academics, attendance and behavior; to be inspired to become positive school and community leaders.
The PASS Mentor will meet with participating students to provide one-on-one and/or small group mentoring sessions to build positive relationships, provide academic tutoring in and out of the classroom, and engage students in youth development activities/discussions so students can become connected to school and academic achievement.
The PASS Mentor strives to empower students to reach their fullest potential and become positive leaders - engaging students in leadership school and community volunteer activities and opportunities, youth development and prevention/intervention curriculum lessons that promote non-violence and healthy choices as outlined in the program.
The PASS Mentor also serves as a liaison to connect students to other programs and/or resources on campus that facilitate academic and community participation. Students are required to return a signed permission slip from a parent or guardian to participate in the program.
Through the San Diego County Office of Education the PASS AmeriCorps Program collaborates with Vista Unified School District. PASS AmeriCorps program is in multiple schools and districts throughout San Diego County. PASS AmeriCorps is a grant funded program administered by California Volunteers and sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
