What is me & my commUnity?

 
me & my commUnity, created by Diane Meiller & Associates, Inc., is a three-part mentoring program offering the opportunity for young women to work with business and community leaders to solve current community issues. As part of this program, participants learn making a difference in their community can also make a difference in themselves. They will have the opportunity to better understand their personal strengths and how leveraging those strengths can lead to success. In addition, leaders and faculty members from Valencia College share basics on what to expect in college and sources of financial aid.
