Please sponsor Johanna and Guillermo as they run the marathon to raise funds for Inside Out Community Arts' after school programs!
Johanna and Guillermo have been students with Inside Out since they were in middle school. Now they're in high school and are part of our Alumni Mentor Program. The Alumni Mentor Program provides a supportive artistic community for promising young men and women who are graduates of Inside Out's middle school arts education programs. As an Alumni Mentor, they are trained to work in the classroom as "teaching assistants" alongside Inside Out's Artist Leaders. The Alumni Mentor Program's goal is to continue to provide a positive nurturing community of peers and adults that support and encourage the mentors dreams, their pursuit of higher education, creative endeavors and rewarding careers.

In Johanna's own words "I have definitely grown from participating in Inside Out's programs The School Project and the Alumni Mentor Program, and I will try my best to stay part of the Inside Out family for the rest of my life, because Inside Out is, without a doubt, the best thing that has ever happened to me. I have also been part of the Cross Country and Track and Field teams since my sophomore year and have found in these another tool to give back to Inside Out, just a little of what it has given me as I will be running the LA Marathon with Team Inside Out on March 17th, yay!"
