College is Real (CIR) provides education, motivation, resources and support to low-income, minority (predominantly Latino) students from Richmond High who demonstrate academic potential, have college aspirations, and who typically will be the first in their families to attend college.
One of CIR’s key success factors and one of the special benefits it offers to its students is the mentoring program. Mentors meet in person and via the web with their mentees. Mentors provide encouragement, accountability, perspective and guidance through the high school academic and college application and selection process. Contact Liz Bayat, lbayat@aol.com if you would like more information or are interested in becoming a mentor.
