Academy 4

Academy 4 Friday

Alice Contreras Elementary School
Mentor a 4th Grader at Alice Contreras Elementary School

We need your help! Academy 4 takes place one Friday afternoon a month during the school year. All fourth-grade students, mentors, and volunteers gather on the school campus, on the same afternoon, for a fun-filled time of leadership training and relationship building. We need 125 individuals to make this 9-month commitment for the 2023-2024 school year. All it takes is 90 minutes, once a month. Mentors will be provided day of, onsite training, easy to follow curriculum and fun activities to do with your 4th grader.

What’s a Spark Club?

Leaders 5 Dates


In the LEADERS 5 program, 5th graders take the leadership traits they learned the year prior in Academy 4 and put them into action! Fifth graders become mentors themselves to younger students in their schools, teaching them about leadership and spending quality time together. Volunteers help Emcee the monthly program days, provide support during mentoring time, and help facilitate service projects. This is a 90 minute commitment, once a month, from October to April.
