FROM SMALL BEGINNINGS TO BIG DREAMS

What we're about

At United for Social Justice, we are committed to helping first generation high school students (including undocumented students) to achieve their dream of higher education. Our Road to College Program is composed of:

  • workshops by experts on the college application process,
  • guidance by trained mentors who know the college experience,
  • scholarship opportunities, and 
  • a network of support or family—a group of people who share the same dreams and goals.

If college is your dream, we want to help you too!

A MENTOR FOR YOU

Having a guide who has shared your experiences can really help.  Mentoring is part of the USJ program and our mentors are either college students, college graduates, or professionals.

USJ SCHOLARSHIPS

Lack of money is one of the biggest obstacles to going to college. Since USJ began we have awarded scholarships of varying amounts to 56 students, providing them with a start to their college career.
