College Access Programs

we make college accessible.

We connect historically underserved youth from local public schools throughout San Francisco and Daly City with free, comprehensive and culturally competent college access services. We serve 3,000+ youth every year, and 77% of our participants are low-income and first in their families to attend college.

The Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC) is a non-profit, youth development community organization based in San Francisco. Click here to visit JCYC's main website.
