California Mini-Corps

The California Mini-Corps program is a statewide program that places college students in local elementary and high schools in an effort to develop future teachers. College of the Desert students who join the Mini-Corps program will provide academic support to students from migrant family backgrounds and serve as a liaison between the child’s parents and the local school systems. To be eligible to participate in the Mini-Corps program, a student should come from a migrant family background and be enrolled in 12 semester units.
