College Access Programs

Our Mission

JCYC College Access Programs connect historically underserved youth with comprehensive and culturally competent college access services. By partnering with local public schools throughout San Francisco and Daly City, JCYC College Access Programs are able to serve low income-qualified students, many of whom will be first in their families to attend college. JCYC College Access Programs are comprised of JCYC Educational Talent Search (ETS), JCYC Upward Bound (UB), and the San Francisco College Access Center (SFCAC).

All services offered by JCYC College Access Programs are completely free.
The Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC) is a non-profit, youth development community organization in San Francisco. JCYC is the fiscal agent of the College Access Programs. To learn more about JCYC, please visit our main website.
