APS Board Honors ABC Community School Partnership Volunteer


Albuquerque Public School's West Mesa High School has been a community school since 2013. With YDI-Elev8 as its lead partner, it's been growing into one of the best-run community schools in New Mexico.

As part of West Mesa's community school development, the school reached out to parents at the beginning of last year, utilizing the ABC Community School Partnership's discovering Opportunity” survey.

Clothing was identified as one of the highest needs - and that led to the development of the Mustang Clothing Bank at West Mesa.

Last school year the Mustang Clothing Bank had 220 visits which resulted in 1,239 items being distributed, with a conservative donation value of $13,350. 

The Mustang Clothing Bank is unique in that it provides new clothing - approximately 90% of clothing is brand new -  and is accessible to West Mesa students as well as their parents and siblings.

On Oct. 5, 2016, Marisol Campos, a YDI AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer at West Mesa High School last year, was recognized by the Albuquerque Public Schools Board for her vision and contributions to the Mustang Clothing Bank.
