Community Colleges – Apply Today and Join Us in Empowering Parenting Students


The California Alliance for Student Parent Success, a joint effort by California Competes and EdTrust-West, launched the application process for our first capacity-building opportunity for California Community Colleges.

We believe that strengthening institutional policies and practices at community colleges in California, where 1 in 5 students are parenting, is crucial to empowering bright futures for all Californians.

Our Empowering Parenting Students Community of Practice centers connection and facilitates peer learning opportunities that will allow participating college teams to increase their knowledge of student parents, particularly of single mothers, along with their intersectional identities and assets.

All colleges within the California Community College system are encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline:

Applications are due by June 7, 2024.
