Mission Statement

Sequoia Adult School Scholars providing scholarships and tutoring for low-income adults, mostly immigrants, who want to further their education at community college.

Description

SASS provides our scholarship recipients with the following:

  • Textbooks, which can cost several hundred dollars a semester.
  • Bus passes, which cost $320 a semester, for all students who need to take the bus to college.
  • Parking passes for students who drive to college.
  • Donated computers for students who need them.
  • College advising to help students choose classes, resolve financial aid issues, and navigate the college bureaucracy. Silicon Valley Community Foundation makes this possible.
  • Tutoring, by community volunteers, who work one-on-one with students.
