Program Areas

College Readiness

& Access

We provide opportunities and resources to build resumes and become college ready. Our College Bound program includes university tours, summer immersion on college campuses, academic tutoring, SAT prep and guidance through the entire application and financial aid process.

Financial

Literacy

 We partner with financial institutions such as First Republic Bank to teach classes on the fundamentals of personal financial success, including banking, saving,  budgeting, investing, and more.

Career

Awareness

Like our motto says, “If you can see it, you can be it!” Our “I CAN Be…” program strives to expose our youth to new and interesting career paths they may not be aware of. We prioritize finding speakers and companies run by Black and Latinx entrepreneurs to help our youth see the possibility in their lives. 

Tech Innovation & Entrepreneurship

We offer high quality, virtual educational and leadership programming through our summer tech camps, virtual tech center, and upcoming SoLa Technology and Entrepreneurship Center.
