GRENADA ALUMNI INITIATIVE
"PAVING A PATH FORWARD" Mentorship Program for 230 Secondary School Students.
Reunion Registrants and other Volunteers will become Mentors to the students through their remaining secondary school years.
The GRENADA PUBLIC SERVICE COOPERATIVE CREDIT UNION is Collaborating with the 2015 Alumni Week Steering Committee and is the OFFICIAL SPONSOR of the Students in the Mentorship Program. Through its EXCEL Student Program, GPSCCU will open an account, with a $25 deposit, for each of the Mentees.
The Excel Club is backed by the Ministry of Education and is aimed at encouraging good performance in academics as well as participation in approved sporting, athletic and artistic activities. Students achieving an "A" average on their report card at the end of the term will receive $25 to go towards their Excel account.
