Summer 2009

The AIR Summer Program has a designed approached to give our students
greater self-esteem and self-confidence and to promote higher education through
cultural identity. Our goal is to examine our cultural beliefs and identify our
strengths from our culture. Our aim is to empower our students in understanding
themselves, gain greater motivation to succeed in school and to motive them
to pursue higher education. Our concept is to teach through culture.
Overall, we will have a fun and exciting summer with numerous activities allowing
our students socialize with other Native students, examine the cultural aspects
of Kumeyaay culture and giving the students opportunity to research their own heritage, and gain insightful information
on higher education. In the end, we hope our summer program will encourage greater success in the fall school semester for
those high and junior high school students with all eyes targeting higher education as the ultimate goal.
