Perfect example of how KQED’s American Graduate Initiative can make an impact of the lives of high school students who are eager to learn and expand their experiences.
As Cesar Cruz, ARISE High, Adelante Coordinator, Raza History Teacher explained, “It was a great experience for them to see people of color from their neighborhood at KQED and then to sit in on lectures that are inspiring and life changing. It was a powerful day! It made students who are dropping out in high school envision themselves at SF State and working at KQED!”
Homies Empowerment Youth in the Adelante Leaders program at ARISE High travel to KQED thanks to Yo Ann Martinez and then to SF State thanks to Dr. Jeff Duncan-Andrade and explore media, education and life long learning.
