Bring out your best in school, jobs and life.

College is exciting - a whole new way of thinking and doing things. If your childhood included abuse, neglect or foster care, your past may have complicated this journey. Identify your strengths & passions & avoid old patterns to speed your progress. Take The Next Step into a hopeful future!

Join us for Bridge 2 College Series Workshops. Do this 21-day web tool that offers interactive, social-media-style coaching to help you connect fully with your dream for the future. Learn how to develop a simple strategy to achieve your unique vision. Take stepa that put your plan into action.

Summer Workshops: Monday, June 29 - Monday, July 20

Brought to you in cooperation with Jeremiah's Promise, CSM and San Mateo County HSA's Education and Employment Services for Transition Age Foster Youth and THP-P Youth.
