What is Transitions?  
The mission of the Transitions Program is to provide access to higher education to
individuals released from the California criminal justice system, and create a smooth transition from prison to the community college. 

 
What is the goal of the program?
The goal of our program is to assist individuals on parole to re-integrate into society by pursuing their goal of beginning or continuing college. Through a College Success class and peer mentoring, students explore practical strategies for empowering themselves to become active, responsible and lifelong learners. During the program, students will complete a journey of self-discovery that will help prepare them to make wise choices both in a college setting and in life outside of the college environment.
