Crawford MVAS Students Make a Difference in Community

The Colina Park Neighborhoods First Initiative has formed a partnership with Crawford High MVAS students to create the "Stories of Colina Park," a project designed to increase cultural understanding and neighborhood pride.

It is a two-year service learning project between San Diego Local Initiatives Support Corporation, the Boulevard Business Association and the Multimedia and Visual Arts School (MVAS) at Crawford.

During the 2008-09 school year, and continuing this school year, 80 MVAS students have identified and interviewed diverse community leaders, written human interest stories based on these interviews, interpreted the stories through art, created public art installations displayed along El Cajon Boulevard and documented the project through a website and printed materials.

To check out their work, go to For more information, please contact Principal Diego Gutierrez at (619) 583-2500.
