Criminal Justice Students Learn by Mentoring At-Risk Youth

Full Press Release

CSU Stanislaus senior Jennifer Allgood helped one local high school student find motivation to turn around a failing grade and pass a class needed for graduation. She provided emotional support to another, who was struggling in school while dealing with a death in the family.

Allgood was one of more than 100 students who participated last year in the university's Criminal Justice Mentor Program, an undergraduate requirement for CSU Stanislaus criminal justice students. For Allgood, like many of the mentors, it was more than a grade.
