Project Change in the San Mateo County Office of Education is a program that provides vulnerable youth with tangible opportunities to attend and succeed in college. The program provides students with college instruction inside juvenile justice facilities, support in completing college and financial aid applications, and direct access to post-secondary education. Once in college, students receive wrap-around services, including a mentor and their own space on campus to convene regularly.
