Project Change

Overview

Project Change is the first community college supported program in California to provide wrap-around student support services, direct access to postsecondary education for incarcerated youth, and in-person college instruction inside juvenile youth facilities.

Conference

Creating Pathways from Youth Incarceration to Higher Education
A statewide conference to increase post-secondary education opportunities in California for young people impacted by the juvenile justice system.

Design


The project connects students to resources and programs at CSM, such as a college readiness summer bridge program, social and academic support services, nationally recognized cohort learning communities (PuenteUmoja, and Mana), and career and technical education programs. Students are provided a clear pathway to resources on campus to enhance success. 

A supportive network of volunteer faculty and staff mentors, as well as a project director, assist students with navigating their first year in college. 

This program unites CSM and San Mateo County community organizations together in a joint effort to help underrepresented populations of students make the transition to community college.
