2021 CCCS Alianza Virtual College Advisor Mentors

Want to make a difference in a young scholar's life?
Do you love offering advice on undergraduate academics in colleges and universities? Then we need you!

Alianza's High School Learn and Earn Program students will be graduating in June 2022.

The Learn and Earn Staff works daily with these students with homework help, resume writing, securing technology access, doing academic reviews, and more.

College applications are extremely stressful for these teens. Many are first-generation college students and have no one at home to guide them. That’s why we are looking for your support to help keep these students on track.
