College Possible at David Douglas High School

For the past several years, studies on the effectiveness of youth mentoring programs have suggested that youth with a long-term, consistent, caring adult mentor can experience myriad positive developmental and academic outcomes. 

Drawing on public input, local data and research,  PCL adopted the following goal for mentoring investments:  connect children and youth with caring adult role models that support their well-being. The strategy adopted to work toward this goal is:  Supports for students’ academic achievement and/or post‐secondary pursuits.

PCL publishes annual performance reports on mentoring programs for each fiscal year. Performance of mentoring programs during the previous levy period (2009-2014) is covered in PCL’s 5 year Report.
