JCYC San Francisco College Access Center (SFCAC)

The San Francisco College Access Center is a California State funded program that provides college preparation information and assistance. Although it is open to the community, the program targets students who come from low income backgrounds and are the first of their family to enroll in college. We are also a safe space for undocumented students and families.
