APCH Teens: 2019 Northern California College Tours

“A positive impact the trip gave me was that it actually got me into going to college. Another impact was that it motivated me to do good and stay in school because without it we basically have no future and no job. The trip was very helpful and I encourage others to go next time.”- Sheila (10th grade)

Every year the Teen & Young Adult program takes a group of high school teens to visit colleges and universities in Northern California.  This year our teens consisted of a group of current high school sophomores and juniors. We visited six schools: CSU Monterey Bay, UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkley, UC Davis, San Francisco State University, and San Jose State University.

At each school, our teens were greeted by an APCH Shaheen Scholar that guided them and answered all of their questions about life in college. It was an amazing 4 days filled with new experiences, hopes, and inspiration. College is no longer just a thought, our teens are attending college and graduating from these top universities. To date, we have sent 400 first generation scholars to college and university.

You can help us continue to inspire hope and make college a reality for hundreds more by donating today.

Check out the letter one of our members wrote about their experience and enjoy the rest of our photo gallery.
