Open enrollment for the 2017 Teen Police Academy for ages 13-18 has begun. The 12-week academy will begin on Feb. 22 and end on May 11. Classes will be held on Wednesday nights from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Police Department. Applicants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, and all applicants will undergo a small background check. First priority is given to students who live and/or attend school in Chula Vista. As we anticipate the class will fill up very quickly, we recommend acting immediately.
Interested teens should complete the application, then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can also be dropped off at the front office of the Chula Vista Police Department, at Fourth Avenue and F Street.
Please contact Officer Angela Gaines at email@example.com, or at 691-5187, if you’ve emailed an application and do not receive a reply within 48 hours.
TheDream.US is a national scholarship fund for DREAMers, immigrant youth who came to this country at a very young age without documentation.
These students have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) or TPS (Temporary Protected Status) that allows them to live and legally work in the United States.
But of the 65,000 DREAMers who graduate from high school each year, only 5-10% of them enroll in college, primarily because they receive no federal aid.
TheDream.US provides scholarships to highly qualified DREAMers to help them pay for their college education. In addition to scholarships, TheDREAM.US team advocates for their scholars and closely monitors and supports their success.
This work is anchored in data, with the goal of funding 4,000 DREAMer graduates.
