Have you been looking for a good cause to contribute to? I encourage you to support Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI)!

BLCI's mission is near and dear to me as a first generation college student myself. As soon as I learned about the great work that BLCI was doing, I knew I needed to play my own part in it and help make the path to college more accessible and less daunting. 

BLCI helps underserved, underrepresented youth across San Diego County to build a path to economic mobility and financial security by preparing them to be the first in their families to attend and graduate college through no-cost after school programs that begin in third grade.  

  • To date,100% of BLCI graduates have pursued secondary education. 
  • 95% of BLCI college graduates are employed within 6 months of graduation. 
  • Statistically, first generation and low-income students like those supported at BLCI have a college completion rate of only 21%. Statewide, regardless of status, the statistic is slightly higher at 55%, yet BLCI students exceed the average for all segments with a college completion rate of 71%! 

I have seen first hand the challenges that the pandemic has posed on our students. Through our tutoring and workshops, we are working hard to close the learning gaps that exist. Research suggests that high-dosage tutoring, like the model offered at BLCI, can produce gains equivalent to about four months of learning, yet a recent federal study found that just 37 percent of public schools reported offering such programs nationally. 

Curious on how your donation will help our students? Below are a few of the many ways your support will contribute to the lives of our students.

  • Field trips to local museums and cultural events.
  • College/University trips for rising seniors
  • Our Scholarship Fund
  • School supplies and educational resources

Please support my efforts with your donation and together we can #BeThePath to ending poverty through education.
