College & Alumni Program (CAP)
CAP Bay Area
Following an early track record of success serving students from Making Waves Academy, CAP saw the need to serve more low-income students throughout the Bay Area.
Through a competitive application process, CAP Bay Area serves an additional population of low-income high school graduates from the nine Bay Area counties. Through generous contributions from donors, CAP partners with Bay Area schools and community-based organizations to grow and refine this pilot program.
