Transfer Lions Club
Transfer Lions Club (aka TLC) was started in 2015 to welcome and orient new transfer Lions to JSerra.
TLC, which is also known to stand for tender loving care, is comprised of peer mentors who have to apply, interview, and go through extensive training to be the best mentor they can be to our new students.
THE VALUE OF MENTORSHIP
TLC has approximately 30 mentors comprised of both transfer and non-transfer students. All are enthusiastic and eager to help other transfers feel loved and welcomed to their new school knowing very well themselves how difficult and confusing the transition to a new school can be.
Mentors are the point people for new transfers and will often check in with their mentees throughout the year.
TLC hosts various events throughout the year specifically for our new transfer students to feel like a loved member of our community. Some events include:
- Transfer Orientations
- Locker Welcome Package
- Ice Cream Social at the beginning of the new school year
- Coffee Breaks
- Thanksgiving Dinner (at lunch)
- Christmas Cookies and Hot Cocoa Break
- St. Patrick's Day Root Beer Float Party
- End of the Year Pizza Study Break

I transferred to JSerra from San Clemente High School in the middle of my freshman year. I was extremely nervous since I had never been to a private school before, but my TLC mentor was there for anything I needed. TLC helped me feel comfortable in my transition and eased so many of my stresses.
