How They'll Use the Award

Dos Caminos is striving to create a college-bound culture on our campus. We are looking for funds to create college awareness activities, materials for college lessons, including money to fund field trips to local universities. In addition, we are in the process of becoming an AVID Elementary school, a program that not only focuses on college readiness, but also provides teachers the research-based instructional strategies the will yield results with our students. In addition to these goals, Dos Caminos would utilize grant funds to help pay for assemblies and guest speakers aimed at increasing students’ understanding of the skills and motivation necessary to get into college. As a Title 1 school, many of our families did not attend college, and college may not be a current reality for their children. I hope to change this. Such a grant could truly transform our school and impact our students’ futures.
