    Chicanos Por La Causa – Refugee Youth Mentoring Program

    Mentors serve as friends, role models and consistent sources of support by helping their mentee develop and reach their personal, academic and career goals. Most importantly, they build a fun, trusting, one-on-one relationship with their mentee. This is an opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a young adult. Building a relationship with their mentee can be a slow process and mentors should be open to guidance, support, and creativity as they establish their relationship.

    Head Start and Early Head Start

    A program focusing on school readiness in the areas of language and cognitive development, early reading, science and mathematics, social skills, and physical development. Those who are eligible include children ages 0-5, families who meet federal income guidelines, pregnant women, families receiving SSI & TANF, and children diagnosed with disabilities, foster children and homeless families.

    Available in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, and Swahili.
