College and Career Exploration for AHA Youth

This fall get your high school student to the “Diplomas to Degrees” Center at the Alameda Boys and Girls Club.  The “Diplomas to Degrees” Center helps Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) high school students prepare for vocational training and/or college after graduating high school.  All high school students in your AHA household are eligible to attend the “Diploma to Degrees” Center at the Alameda Boys and Girls Club for FREE.    At the “Diplomas to Degrees” Center high school students will perform career exploration, prepare for college applications, explore vocational training programs, and learn about financial aid resources (which includes free tuition at the College of Alameda).

 

Furthermore, your high school student will be eligible to receive a $250 stipend for each semester completed of the college and career preparation curriculum at the  “Diplomas to Degrees” Center.   The stipend is to be used solely for post-high school education costs, whether it be for vocational training and/or college.  The stipends are awarded by the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda (AHA) directly to the AUSD high school graduate.
