SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
With diverse classrooms across the nation, it’s more important than ever that educators reach out and engage minority students to help them reach their full educational potential.
On October 16, School Improvement Network will host a free webinar with Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate (BRMA), featuring Rachel Mills, a BRMA mentor, and Erika, a student in the mentoring group. Mills and Erika will discuss how to engage students from different cultures and backgrounds.
BRMA is designed to improve achievement among black and Latino students by providing students resources like mentoring, advocacy, tutoring, college and career preparation and college scholarships.
