Our kids and this program represent the hope and promise of our collaborative effort. Through continued involvement in high quality after school and summer programs, our kids will continue to build the skills and academic acumen to begin closing the achievement gap in West Contra Costa.
The Ed Fund is working to create educational environments where our students thrive and succeed in their chosen endeavors. This past year, in a strategic planning process with our community partners we asked the question, “What can we do to help our students graduate from high school ready to succeed in college and their chosen career?”
Yesterday, June 28th, was my last day as a community college student at Contra Costa College. A lot has happened to me since graduating from high school in 2013. It is 2016 now and I’m headed off to my university— San José State University.
