Eastern Coachella Valley for CHANGE (ECV for CHANGE) aims to ensure that High School sophomores in the Coachella Valley Unified School District are meeting the necessary requirements they need to apply to CSUs, CCs & UC’s during their Senior year of High School. The ECV for CHANGE will serve as a 1-year mentorship program for CVUSD sophomores in order to ensure that they receive the necessary support they need to thrive in high school and higher education. The three models of ECV for CHANGE are higher education, leadership development, and community service. The mentorship will pair a current CVUSD sophomore with a current college student or college graduate who was a former CVUSD student or is a part of the Coachella Valley.
