Helping Eagles develop real-world skills through information and hands-on workshops.

This program was created to enhance the educational experience at Santa Margarita Catholic High School by offering real-life experiences that are not typically taught inside a classroom. All current and alumni Eagles are encouraged to participate in the robust network that Santa Margarita Catholic High School has to offer. "Our goal is to create a culture of Eagles helping Eagles for years to come." SMCHS President Andy Sulick '91.
