In addition to master’s-level instructors and partnerships with post-secondary educational institutions, MDC Scholars Talent Search and College Bound programs are so transformative for our students because of the support and participation of parents and other community members. There are many ways to get involved in each of these programs, none of which require significant time commitments. You can be a part of their success in a way no one else can.
Here are a few example opportunities:
- Volunteer to chaperone a field trip
- Attend an Advisory Board meeting
