Spring Semester: Week #15
2014 Men and Women of Distinction
Congratulations to Joshua Kleinbergs, Man of the Year; Nora Matti, Woman of the Year; Jake Joblon, Outstanding Service Award; Shirley Lee, Outstanding Service Award; and to all of our 2014 Men and Women of Distinction.
Love Fullerton

Love Fullerton is going to be epic!!


We hope you will consider participating in our first annual citywide service day called Love Fullerton on May 17, 2014.  


It is a partnership of 20+ churches, city government, the Mayor and City Council, the Chief of Police, local businesses, service organizations, public and private education, and local residents all working together to enhance the world-class experience of living and working in our city.

Our mission is to demonstrate kindness, meet needs and impact lives together. We are planning for 2,000 volunteers serving at 50+ different work projects. Along the way we'll paint benches, teach life skills to at risk youth and spruce up some neighborhoods.


We will begin the day with opening festivities at 8 a.m. - which includes free food and vendors - followed by an opening rally at 9 a.m. The rally will take place on the plaza at Harbor and Wilshire Ave (121 E. Wilshire Ave). After the brief rally, volunteers will connect with project leaders for final instructions and head off to work by 9:30a.m. Then at 1p.m. we will gather back together at Hillcrest Park and enjoy lunch together (compliments of Jack Franklyn of Heroes).



So grab your friends, classmates, club members, and LOVE Fullerton!

CCCP Scholars Program
UCLA's Center for Community College Partnerships (CCCP) presents the CCCP Scholars Program for the 2014-2015 Academic Year. The goal of the program is to motivate, inform and prepare students to transfer from a California community college to a selective Top Tier Research institution such as UCLA. Students in the program have access to our summer and year-long academic preparatory transfer programs which guide students through the community college experience, the application and admissions process, research and pre-graduate opportunities and career exploration. The programs use Critical Race Theory as a framework to address issues from a social justice and educational equity perspective.
