In our second year, our focus remains on serving the Pleasant Grove area of Southeast Dallas, where the majority of our students reside.
This part of town is particularly special to Primos founder, Alicia Serrato, as she grew up in Pleasant Grove.
By focusing on a specific geographical area we are able to provide central meeting locations that are easily accessible to mentees and their families.
Our mentees attend the following schools:
