Make a difference in a Scholar’s life…and your own. Become a Mentor.
We are looking for individuals who would like to help a young person successfully complete college. Students who need support are from communities under-represented in higher education, from families in financial need. All students are from public schools in Oakland and are headed to four-year colleges. Many are the first in their families to attend college. All have received $16,000 four-year “Great Expectations” awards.
The goal of our mentoring program is to provide a sustained, community-based network of personal support, information and resources to East Bay College Fund Scholars and their families, to help each Scholar have a successful college experience and expand their future opportunities.
