CCC First Year Experience
The First Year Experience was created specifically to support Richmond Promise Scholars attending Contra Costa College. The components of the First Year Experience are:
A one-week math program designed to develop knowledge, skills and confidence for not only their math classes, but overall academic success.
Career exploration & transfer success courses.
Early connection and advisement to prepare students for transferring to 4-year universities and their careers.
Near Peer College Success Coaching:
Access to dedicated point-person to support college success.
CCC Richmond Promise Scholars must participate in the First Year Experience or another learning community, such as the Puente Project or Per Ankh, as a requirement to receive their scholarship. Richmond Promise is currently building and formalizing partnerships with colleges and universities across the country to provide support for Richmond Promise Scholars.
