Staff members and student coordinators at Pomona’s Draper Center for Community Partnerships, a space that supports community engagement activities for students at Pomona and the 5Cs.
Do the 5Cs feel like a bubble? Pop it and take a step outside with the Pomona Mountain Project (PMP), an organization founded in 2019 by Shawn Trimble PO ’21 and Nicole Arce PO ’21, dedicated to giving nearby high school students an unorthodox approach to mental health care.
