Sixty students representing a dozen high schools are taking classes at Mission College as part of the Summer Bridge program. The students take courses with college instructors such as Dr. Ruthie Grant and Vilma Bernal in English, business, multimedia and humanities. One workshop organized by program directors Dean Belinda Acuña and Virginia Morales required students to develop a financial plan, using “real world” costs for housing, food, education and other needs. Sessions on financial aid and resume-writing, as well as enrichment trips, are also part of the program.
