Camp Connect

High School and/or Middle School students are invited to attend the Residential Inter-Act Camp Connect Academic/Leadership Development Institute at Jack L. Boyd Outdoor School (Camp Green Meadows) in Fish Camp, California. This program has been recognized at an international and national level through the “Despierta America” Television Show on Univision and was broadcast on a PBS special on Exemplary Student Leadership Projects for migrant students. The program creators were also featured in a California Department of Education book entitled Encounters: Man to Man. This program includes many unique academic and personal development activities highlighted by a low and high ropes/challenge course, visual and performing arts talent shows, and environmental studies.  All of these activities take place in a beautiful, introspective environment in the Sierras near Yosemite. The flora and fauna and the beautiful trail walks provide for an excellent “Beyond the Classroom Walls” teaching and learning experience.

“Blueprint for Success” Project (Week-long or Weekend):

This is a semi-residential project conducted on the California State University, Fresno campus.  High school students are bussed daily to Fresno State where they participate in specially designed workshops and classes that help prepare them for higher education.  The emphasis is on career awareness and students research potential careers.  They interview faculty and use the on-campus resources and experiences to motivate themselves.  Students eat at the residential dining hall and generally gain the “college” experience.

The Family Project
(4 Saturday Sessions)

An educational project designed to empower migrant families to succeed in this society.  Using the community education concept (Parents, Children, School), this project enhances student success in school using Dr. Luis Moll’s research on “Funds of Knowledge.”  This research indicates that immigrant families have a wealth of formal and informal educational skills that can be utilized to help their children.  Parents and students participate in breakout sessions designed around various topics such as: enhancing communication and cooperation, enhancing self-concept, diversity issues and critical thinking/decision making and goal setting skills.
