Welcome to Gavilan College!
The California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) has recognized that there is a significant deficit regarding youth from foster care attending higher education. Acknowledging this need, they are sponsoring a concerted effort called the Foster Youth Success Initiative (FYSI) to bring issues affecting youth to the forefront and to improve the ability of youth to access postsecondary education and benefit from the support services that are available but are often unknown to them.
The Guardian's Scholars' role on campus is to be a resource/advocate for you—to connect you to financial aid assistance, faculty mentors, peer mentors, counseling support, and all the departments on campus that can assist you to succeed at Gavilan College.
It is our goal to educate, guide, motivate, inform, and provide you with resources that will asist you to take full advantage of your college experience. We are here to help you!
