What Have We Done?

Every organization takes the time to pause and review what was done over the past years to see what can be done to deliver on promises made. The same holds true for us! Here are some of the milestones that we have hit over the past few years:

    • A career day with more than 37 participating organizations
    • 10 scholarship marathons where students learned about and applied for multiple scholarships to offset tuition costs
    • A 4-day college tour where students visited several California Universities
    • Dozens of specific workshops geared towards Juniors and Seniors
