Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 2.47.20 PMIn 2 decades, we’ve graduated 2,500 youth from our leadership programs and have made a significant impact on public education and racial justice in California. Thanks to so many supporters, youth, families, and staff in our 20 years, we’ve been able to: Increase college access and get more counselors in schools, Improve the quality of school facilities and access to qualified teachers, Lead the charge in the effort to engage low-income, and young people of color in elections, Move the State Board of Education (just this year!) to finally include school climate as a factor in measuring school quality

We have much to celebrate and hope you will join us, current and potential CFJ supporters to celebrate our history and learn more about where we’re headed in the next 20 years.

Join Our Celebration!
