Cardinals Interact Club

Cardinals Interact is a partnership between Price Philanthropies and Downtown San Diego Rotary Club to support a mentoring program for Hoover High School students grades ten through twelve.

The name comes from Hoover’s mascot, the Cardinal. Interact is Rotary’s high school community service program.

There are approximately 150 Hoover High students who participate at any one time in the three year mentoring and tutoring program. Much of the program experience is modeled on the Aaron Price Fellows Program including camp and visits to San Diego businesses, non-profits and government institutions. Students are able to experience a variety of programs along with ongoing one on one mentoring and tutoring. One of the major challenges at Hoover High School is a low graduation rate. The program has been successful at helping many of its participants graduate from high school and attend college (more than 90% of all program graduates enroll in college). Those who complete the program and enroll in college are awarded a $1,000 or $1,500 scholarship.
