The SBCC Foundation helps students like Michael Sanchez start college with confidence and determination.

“The Running Start summer bridge program at Santa Barbara City College really helped me prepare for college. When my older sister participated, I saw firsthand how she grew as a person, learned to accomplish her goals, and graduated from college. I thought to myself, ‘I can do that, too! If I want to be my best, this is the way to go.’”

“The peer advisors and mentors in the Running Start program are so helpful and supportive. I’ve never been in a program like that before. It provides safe territory to figure out what you really want to do in life, and makes the transition to college much easier. Without the Running Start program at SBCC, I don’t think I would have success in college.” – Michael Sanchez, Running Start Alumni
