There are many organizations and programs available to students, both embedded and in collaboration with our schools. From student clubs, tutoring, and first-year experience to AVID , CalSOAP, EOPS, PUENTE, and UMOJA, we will be compiling, sharing, and partnering with many of these opportunities.

More information coming soon!

Established over 40 years ago, the California Community College Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) Programs help underserved and underrepresented students majoring in calculus-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields who seek to transfer to a four-year institution.

PUENTE’s mission is to increase the number of educationally underrepresented students who enroll in four-year colleges and universities, earn college degrees and return to the community as mentors and leaders to future generations. The program is interdisciplinary in approach, with writing, counseling and mentoring components.

Umoja is a community of educators and learners committed to the academic success, personal growth and self-actualization of African American and other students. The Umoja Community seeks to educate the whole student–body, mind and spirit. Informed by an ethic of love and its vital power, the Umoja Community will deliberately engage students as full participants in the construction of knowledge and critical thought. The Umoja Community seeks to help students experience themselves as valuable and worthy of an education.
