Empowering and Motivating High School Students in Davis

Mannys Blueprint for Social Justice worked to empower and motivate high school students in his local community to not only pursue higher education, but also to find success in their college endeavors. Looking to partner with local college admission offices, businesses, non-profit organization and city government, Manny worked to create an after-school tutoring program that puts high school students in direct contact with working professionals and college student advisors. In order to monitor his success, Manny also worked with his local school district to implement a tracking system that keeps records on the number of students who pursue higher education in relation to socio-economic backgrounds, ethnicity, etc.
