Mesa de la Comunidad, a program of the Los Altos Community Foundation, was started in 2008 by community leaders (and brothers) Oscar and Marco Garcia. Mesa de la Comunidad sponsors a summer scholarship program for middle school students to attend enrichment classes at the Community School for Music and Arts and KMVT Channel 15 in Mountain View.
This year, thirteen middle school students from Graham and Crittenden schools are beneficiaries of the Mesa de la Comunidad Summer Scholarship Program. Applicants choose music or art classes at the Community School for Music and Arts or attend a class on television production at the KMVT Channel 15 studio in Mountain View. This year the Mesa program will experiment in providing a class in acting techniques and theater games to increase student comfort in volunteering for school plays and in making presentations in class. In addition to the various enrichment classes, the students will also take a trip to the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco’s Presidio, with transportation provided by members of the Mountain View Police Department driving the police van.
