Cal-SOAP

Central Coast Cal-SOAP Consortium

History

The Central Coast Cal-SOAP Consortium was established in 2001 and serves students in five school districts and two community colleges in North Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Central Coast Cal-SOAP is part of 15 consortia throughout California serving over 150,000 students. It is one of the largest outreach programs of its kind in California.

The California Student Opportunity and Access Program, or Cal-SOAP, is a statewide program designed to increase the number of students attending college.  The program serves elementary, middle school, high school, and community college students who: 

  1. Are from low-income families. 
  2. Will be the first in their family to attend college. 
  3. Are from areas or schools with low-eligibility or college participation rates. 

By building collaborative relationships with federal, state and local sponsors, Cal-SOAP is working to increase the number or students who take advantage of postsecondary opportunities. 

The goal of the program is to advise, motivate and inform students regarding college admissions and financial aid information.  To achieve this goal, Cal-SOAP offers free tutoring and peer advising to students within the target population.

I learn as much from the students as they learn from my teaching. Being associated with Allan Hancock College has allowed me to do what I love most: teach."
