What is CARE?
The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program is a state funded
program for single parents attending Allan Hancock College. The CARE program works
in conjunction with EOPS to provide support services to students who receive CalWORKs
(state cash aid) benefits in the household. In addition, Allan Hancock College is
home to the first and only CARE center established in the State of California. At
the CARE Center students are welcome to come in for tutoring sessions, utilize our
computers and print for free, see their academic counselor, and they can bring their
children to play in our children’s nook. The CARE Center is a child friendly environment
where all CARE students are welcome and have a place to call home at Allan Hancock

Fire Academy Student
"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
