Beginning in 2017, the FRC established a mentor program. RUSD students participate in activities with Mt. SAC students from the REACH program. Activities consist of an icebreaker event where students have dinner together and do some team-building activities while getting to know one another. Students also participate in a college visit. This year, Azusa Pacific University hosted students and their mentors. Students were able to eat lunch in the dining room, tour the campus, and receive an APU t-shirt. Last spring, students and their mentors went to a recording studio in Monterrey Park to learn about the music industry, try instruments, and even record a song. Recently, we established a partnership with LA County to add additional mentors to the program.
