Both locations offer educational opportunity to traditional and at-risk students in Maryvale
“These two locations bring educational opportunity and empowerment to the residents of Maryvale and central Phoenix,” said Rio Salado College President Chris Bustamante, Ed.D. “It is imperative that we reach out and serve students in their local neighborhoods to help them take the next steps in achieving their academic goals.”
KJZZ’s SPOT 127 Youth Media Center
SPOT 127 is an innovative after-school program designed to empower high school students through the development of state-of–the-art skills in digital media, radio and journalism.
The nearly 7,500 square foot building was made available through a partnership with the Phoenix Union High School District. Renovations were made possible through the generosity and donations of many community partners.
RSC Thomas focuses on bridging pathways to post-secondary education, internships and career advancement. It provides adult basic education, where students can come take GED preparation classes or learn English as a second language. Essential student services such as academic advising, computer accessibility, a testing center and tutoring are also available at the site for RSC’s online learners. The location is also home to dental assisting classes and a demonstration kitchen, lab spaces and classrooms to support post-secondary classes.
