Success Agents… Together We Succeed!
Success Agents is a new interagency partnership that includes the San Diego Commission on Gang Prevention and Intervention, the DA’s Gang and Juvenile Justice Division, the City Attorney’s, San Diego Police Department, Star Pal and San Diego County’s Dept. of Health and Human Services. The Success Agents Program is committed to helping at risk elementary school kids avoid trouble and thrive, both in and outside of school. One important aspect of Success Agents is a weekly Wednesday afternoon session designed to foster mentoring relationships, enhance literacy, resilience, self-esteem, discipline and expand the horizons of these youth. Each student is paired with both a teacher mentor and law-enforcement mentor to provide that one-on-one support the student needs to realize one’s dreams. In addition, the student participating in the program will be followed from fourth grade to eight grade to insure they receive the support and guidance need to succeed.
