PUENTE AT CHABOT CELEBRATES 40 YEARS
Since 1981, Puente has been "Bridging Classrooms & Community" at Chabot College. Puente’s mission is to increase the number of underrepresented students at four-year universities, support students to earn college degrees, and inspire them to return to the community as leaders. Since its birth at Chabot College, the Puente Project has taken wing and is now at 7 middle schools, 36 high schools, and 65 community colleges throughout the state, as well as in Texas and Washington.
In the past 10 years, Chabot Puente has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to outstanding students who are either transferring to a university or continuing their education at Chabot. Our goal this year is to raise $40,000 in honor of Puente’s 40th anniversary. Donate today to support the Puente project.
Chabot College Rise Program
The Restorative Integrated Self-Education (RISE) program is a jail-to-college pathway addressing the significant needs of the reentry population. RISE’s mission is to support formerly incarcerated and system-impacted students in their successful journey towards their educational and personal goals. The program supports students directly or indirectly impacted by the justice system gain the necessary skills to reenter society through education and mentorship. Help support Chabot’s RISE Program today!
Dr. Lois Jones-Rasberry Foster Youth Scholarship
All funds raised will go towards the Dr. Lois Jones-Rasberry Memorial Foster Youth Scholarship. This scholarship has been established in honor of Dr. Lois Jones-Rasberry, an extraordinary colleague and great inspiration. Dr. Rasberry directed Chabot College’s Foster Care and Kinship Program, teaching, supporting, and serving foster youth and their fostering and adoptive families.
Chabot College Fire Technology Program
The Chabot Fire Technology Program is raising funds to paint and repair the program's aging fire engine from 1987! Our goal is $25,000, which would include establishing a permanently endowed fund that would help pay for repairs and program costs into the future.
Chabot College Academic Senate Fund for Emergency Aid
These funds will provide aid to Chabot students who encounter unforeseen circumstances such as theft, sudden financial hardship, changes in family circumstances, etc., that prevent the student from being successful or continuing with their education.
Funds may be used to cover basic needs such as housing, food, car repair, transportation, etc. Priority will be given to students but funds are available for Faculty and Classified Professionals encountering extreme circumstances (e.g., homelessness, etc.).
