JCYC Cash for College

The Japanese Community Youth Council (JCYC) is a non-profit, youth development community organization based in San Francisco.

We connect historically underserved youth from local public schools throughout San Francisco and Daly City with free, comprehensive and culturally competent college access services. We serve 3,000+ youth every year, and 77% of our participants are low-income and first in their families to attend college.

All Cash for College's are public events so if a student/parent/guardian cannot make the Cash for College at their school site, then they can attend a different event.
