"College Is For Me Too!" is a unique and proven 3-day yearly overnight summer education camp held at CSUF for our mentees (ages 11+) so they can experience a college setting and the joy of learning through structured activities with outstanding camp counselors and sleeping in the dorms. It is designed to inspire, encourage, and raise the mindset of each child.
Pre and post surveys demonstrate that this experience transforms their attitude about school. Our curriculum includes a STEAM component in addition to inspirational guest speakers, drug prevention workshops, fitness activities and more. To strengthen camp benefits, the STEAM project continues quarterly throughout the year.
Our free summer camp for children of prisoners is the only one of its kind in California. The good news is that 95% of these youth now claim they want to go to college!
