Mark Twain High School
Assistance League of Greater San Diego is a community partner in education with Mark Twain High School, an alternative high school in San Diego Unified School District. This school serves students by providing small classes, intensive guidance services, individualized programs, and an Expectant Teen/Teen Parent Classroom and Cal-Safe Infant Toddler Program.
Our volunteers support the students at Twain by providing incentives for student achievement, literacy and health support to teen parents, library donations, and by offering scholarships. On a quarterly basis, our volunteers host a VIP luncheon and present certificates to celebrate positive achievement in both academics and citizenship. Assistance League supports teen parents and children by providing story hour for the children, an annual Books and Blanket event, and a yoga class for teen mothers. Our chapter also supports the school library through book donations and assistance to the librarian. Our scholarship program provides financial and mentoring assistance to graduates transferring to California Community colleges. In 2017, $22,000 was awarded to fund 11 scholarships. Mor Furniture for Less is a business partner with our Assistance League chapter, and supports this philanthropic program.
