Project Change
Advisory Council

The task of the Project Change Advisory Council is to advise the project director on best practices and effective strategies to ensure the program continues to meet the needs of the student participants and the San Mateo County community partners. The counsel serves as a board comprised of faculty, staff, and administrators at the college, as well as members of the partnering San Mateo County institutions. The counsel is tasked with advising the project director and maintaining the core mission of Project Change, which is to ensure access to higher education for some of the most at-risk, underrepresented youth in San Mateo County.
