A Red Circle’s Student Advocates for Education program (SAFE) provides tutoring, mentoring, and connection to educational resources. Our education work seeks to reduce the high levels of suspension for Black students in North County schools, taking a holistic approach to engage with students, families, and educational institutions.

Through Education Advocacy, A Red Circle can:
  • employ college students and trainees to support elementary students with resources, tutoring, and mentoring,
  • provide more specialized services from professionals,
  • support parents through the IEP process, and
  • supply families with basic needs.
