“My favorite moments with C2C have been when I can relate my own experiences with students and other mentors. Whether it’s my cultural background or any difficulties I’ve had in school, I can tell that it means a lot for others to hear that they aren’t alone.”

“ I don’t’ think I’d feel as equipped to become a high school teacher without c2C. I’ve learned so much from professional development on the historical limitations of education to how to serve students equitably.”
