Parents and families are a very important part of MESA's program! We know that parents who are involved in their children's lives contribute to their success, providing things like academic assistance, life experiences, advice, encouragement, and emotional support. We also realize that many parents may have questions about things like high school requirements, college applications, and financial aid.
MESA wants to make sure that parents have the necessary resources to be effective advocates for their children. To help achieve this, we invite parents and families to get involved in MESA.
How can parents get involved?
- Attend a Parent Conference hosted by the Cal State East Bay MESA Office
- Check to see if your child's school hosts a MESA parent night
- Volunteer at a Saturday Academy or other event (call the Cal State East Bay MESA Office at 510.885.3985 to sign up)
- Attend MESA Day competitions to cheer on your son or daughter
Please feel free to contact your child's Advisor or the Cal State East Bay MESA Office for more information on any of these opportunities or to find out what MESA can offer your student.
