Senior Scholars Program

The Senior Scholars Program is a Partner in Education

This Humanities, Arts & Education Program brings together adults & children in a weekly educational setting.
• Adults will meet with student learners grades K-5 to read, write, & illustrate selected literary works.
• They will also celebrate special days & create works of art together.

The adult volunteers need to register & be given the training that is necessary to mentor their group of student learners.

The program is sponsored by West Contra Costa Adult School.
