This mentor-based program is designed to assist high school students as they transition to college, and to help college students as they transition to careers. We do this by pairing students with community members who can provide them with college and career guidance. These pairs agree to meet a minimum of six times during the school year to work toward this objective. The resources provided on this page are intended to assist you in this effort.
“Operation Backpack enables us to distribute backpacks to kids who wouldn’t have them otherwise and for us that’s huge,” said Changnon. “We invite the community to support the homeless and low-income children and their families by bringing new backpacks filled with school supplies to one of the drop-off locations throughout Modesto.” Additional information including a full listing of all drop-off locations, how to volunteer, and the option to give online, is available at www.stancoe.org/go/backpack
