The Advocates For Justice (“AFJ”) mentor program was formed to substantially reduce suspensions and expulsions in Modesto City Schools, to eliminate disparities in education, and to put to end the school-to-prison pipeline in our community.
At AFJ we aspire to motivate, inspire, and empower our students to achieve academic excellence and make positive contributions at school, in their communities, and to our world.
At AFJ we offer research and evidence based creative solutions to fix and correct school discipline problems, decrease dropout rates and increase academic achievement and graduation rates for all students.
AFJ’s Mentor Program provides (1) mentors, (2) educational activities and student events, 3) leadership training, 4) community service and (5) a suspension and expulsion advocate.
At AFJ children are our priority. AFJ is wholeheartedly committed to ensuring our children succeed at home, in school and in life.
We zealously fight for, protect, and defend the rights of our community! We lead by example.
AFJ is devoted to ensuring justice for children, their families, and our community.
AFJ firmly and sincerely believes that education is the path to freedom, success and greatness.
AFJ is dedicated to serving the needs of our children, their families, and our community!
