To dispel confusing  stigmas about higher education, M.E.Ch.A. Xinachtli plans several field trips throughout the academic year: college tours, community tours, & Shadow Days to allow high school students to experience & explore CC, CSU, & UC campuses and perhaps  aspire to attend such institutions after high school.

"I went to UCLA for a tour & Xinachtli hosted a student panel for my class. I really enjoyed the discussions we had at the panel. I had never been to a university before and I didn’t know a lot about university so the UCLA students taught me a lot about life as a college student, living in dorms, scholarships, and financial aid. This really motivated me to apply to colleges."
