The Concerned Parents Alliance/College Bound Programs and the UC San Diego Community/Civic Based organizations are pleased to announce the launch of The College Bound North County Project Jumpstart Academies, a holistic and innovative program designed to empower under-served and under-represented scholars and their families.
