NCCC Team Continues Work By Mentoring and Tutoring in Local Schools

Members of the team are working at 61st Street, Marvin, and Coliseum Elementary Schools and Dorsey, Crenshaw High Schools to serve in Project Advance, the foundation of the organization, which as stated by CYFC, “focuses on the academic improvement and success of foster care and at-risk youth.†In addition, the team is creating a pilot newsletter that the organization will use to feature various student, site, and overall organization highlights.
