Letters from afar & near,

 
 From our Mission Committee: 
 
 
Reality Changers is a diverse program open to kids of all cultures.  Founded by Christopher Yanov in May 2001, Reality Changers provides tutoring and mentoring services to high school students, and primarily serves aspiring first-generation college students in San Diego County.  They will be the first in their families to attend college and our donation, along with donations from other churches in the SD Presbytery seek to help make that happen. 
 
Students assemble at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and at City Heights once to twice a week to learn and study life skills that spell academic, personal and spiritual success.  Reality Changers started with just four students and $300 to its name.  The organization is based on a hard fact that many inner-city students today know more people who have been shot or killed in the street than people who are on the road to college.  Nearly a decade and a half later, Reality Changers now serves nearly 1,000 youth from disadvantaged backgounds evey year (its College Apps Academy course is available to 12th graders from all backgrounds).  At Reality Changers, college changes everything for low-income youth seeking to become first generation college students.  Students who raise their GPAs to 3.5 or higher are awarded scholarships for a weekend at Forest Home (a Christian camp near San Bernardino) and a three-week residential program at UCSD where they can earn college credit.
 
Thanks to help from our church (LCPC) and other churches throughout San Diego, Reality Changes is San Diego’s leading tutoring program for scholarships.
