Alum Rock Counseling Center Inc. Tree #604

Since 1974, Alum Rock Counseling Center (ARCC) has addressed the damage of family conflict, school failure and delinquency among high-risk youth, producing responsible community members and a healthier, more vibrant East San Jose. ARCC offers practical, proven solutions to families when and where they need them most.

Staff members and a few of our clients helped decorate the tree. A volunteer who has been a mentor for three years in our Ocala Middle School Mentoring program also came by with her mentee to help decorate the tree.

Our decorations were all handmade by our clients who wrote on them what they hoped for in the future, what they enjoyed in the present or what goals they have for themselves. The decorations are in ARCCs colors and represent our logo (its very similar if you compare)! We also had Ruby ornaments that represent our 40th Ruby Anniversary. Underneath were also presents that represent each of our agencies values: Respect, Integrity, Diversity, Transparency, Accountability and Innovation/Flexibility.

We are always looking for mentors to help an at-risk youth who attends Ocala Middle School. Mentors are positive role models to a youth aged 11-14 years old.
