How To Afford College and Help Our Community.
If you are or your child is a student at Cal State Dominguez Hills, Compton College, Cerritos College, or some 45 other California community colleges and state universities there’s a program you may want to look into.
#CaliforniansForAll College Corps will provide up to 6,500 college students over two academic years with service opportunities in critical issue areas such as climate action, K-12 education, and COVID-19 recovery. Students who complete a year of service will receive $10,000 while gaining valuable experience serving in their communities. This program will unite young Californians of all backgrounds in service, and, for the first time, specifically creates state-funded opportunities for AB 540 eligible Dreamers to serve their communities.
Students interested in making positive change in their communities while also earning money to help pay for college are encouraged to submit an online application by September 1, 2022. Check with your school on how to apply.

“As a student at Cal State Dominguez Hills, I was inspired for a life of public service,” said Lynwood Mayor Jose Solache. “I encourage Lynwood students at Cal State Dominguez Hill, Compton College, and Cerritos College to apply for the program. Giving back to the community in the way of public service is a gift that keeps on giving for our community and ourselves.”
The goals of the program are fantastic.
- Create a generation of civic-minded leaders with the ability to bridge divides and solve problems.
- Help low-income students graduate college on time and with less debt.
- Address societal challenges and help build more equitable communities across California.
Remember. September 1 is the deadline!
