The announcement for a second free year comes months after the announcement of the College Promise 2.0.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the California College Promise last Friday, an initiative that, if funded in the next state budget, would provide one year of free community college for new students.
Long Beach College Promise leaders shared progress updates and successes of the program during a celebratory event today at the Hotel Maya.
Despite Columbus Day granting most students the day off, children of all ages gathered in a conference room at Ernest S. McBride High School today to witness the signing of an expansion of the Long Beach College Promise which focused on attainable quality pre-school programs and increased internship opportunities in the city.
Five years after launching, the Long Beach College Promise (LBCP) is now a new leading partner, along with 30 other just-partnered organizations, in helping the vision of the 100Kin10 initiative become a reality.
