Partnerships at Del Mar

We have kept an ongoing partnership with Planned Parenthood who comes weekly to talk to students about at-risk-teen behaviors. Planned Parenthood has been with us for 5 years and we have seen a marked decrease in some behaviors as a result. We have also started a partnership with Pacific Clinics to teach a weekly class on alcohol and drug awareness. This class will help our students be informed to make wise choices when presented with at risk opportunities. We also welcome our local San Gabriel Public Library Teen Liberian, Fiona Reimers who will come monthly to work with students on nutrition, financial and personal responsibility issues. All of these workshops are designed to empower our students with a knowledge base to make healthy and safe decisions.
