In partnership with the Boulder Ridge Mobile Home Park and local schools, the Empowerment Center of East County administers a comprehensive mentoring program for Lafayette secondary students. Tapping into best practices in positive youth development, the program, which meets throughout the calendar year (with limited exception), seeks to empower local youth to uncover and ultimately advance their respective self-interests and personal and academic goals. Skills-building workshops, field experiences, counseling, and homework assistance are integrated.
Dream Chasers is currently held at the Boulder Ridge Clubhouse (11990 E.South Boulder Road) on Tuesdays from 4:00-7:00 p.m. and at Angevine Middle School (1150 W. South Boulder Road) on Thursdays from 3:40-5:45 p.m. For more information, please contact Vince@EmpowermentCenterEastCounty.org
