UC San Diego

UC San Diego helps young adults work toward career success, but younger students can get in on the college experience, too.

High school students can get a head start through Academic Connections and experience firsthand what it’s like to live on campus.

Barrio Logan College Institute

Breaking the cycle of poverty is daunting, but a college degree can be a ticket out. Barrio Logan College Institute helps kids from the neighborhood, where only 3 percent of adults over 25 have a degree, become the first in their families to go to college. Barrio Logan College Institute has programs for third graders and up. Think you can help? Sign up to volunteer time, money, or services.
