Students who are selected to attend the College 2 Career program
at Long Beach City College have important responsibilities. They
are required to enroll in a certificate or degree program, and
work towards eventual employment after graduation. As they move
into student housing, they learn to maintain their own student
apartments, become mobile around the community, and work together
with their newfound friends and roommates. 12 students kicked off
the program in 2011, and six more have joined them in year two.
While all of the students are making great progress, two have
recently been recognized for outstanding achievement, with
scholarship awards from Long Beach City College.
