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

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering
I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
