We support youth from third grade through college completion and work closely with their parents in the process. Our participants learn to support each other and their community. Our programs are free of charge, but parents have to donate their time.
Our after school programs are based on the BLCI ABCs of College Success.
First and foremost, we make sure our students are doing well in school to improve their chances of attending a quality college or university and ensure their academic success on a college campus.
We believe that success in life requires more than just earning a high GPA. Through our community partnerships, we provide the training our students need to build confidence, set goals, build professional networks, maintain healthy relationships and access more resources in college and in the community.
Through our weekly “Steps to Success” workshops and college tours throughout California, BLCI promotes a “College-Going Culture.” At BLCI, college is the natural next step after high school. In fact, 100% of our students that go through the College Success Program enroll in college and universities throughout the nation! Students and families learn how to choose the right college and finance their higher education.
Want to make a difference in a child’s life? Become a tutor, mentor or speaker for our youth, families and staff. Making a difference is easier than you think!

No donation is too small or too big. All donations go directly to supporting students get through to College. Your generosity ensures our success!
