B.I.G.E. Student Club

Beyond Incarceration: Greater Education (B.I.G.E.). Through our action, service and collective presence, we are breaking down stereotypes connected to being formerly incarcerated.

  • Connected by our backgrounds, united in our aspirations to support one another and succeed at Allan Hancock College
  • Working toward breaking the stigma connected to being formerly incarcerated
  • Bi-weekly meetings geared toward connecting students who have experienced incarceration or those impacted by the incarceration of someone else to larger campus student resources
  • Peer support and mentoring
  • Opportunities to serve our larger Santa Maria community
  • Meetings are open to all AHC Students, including students who have experienced incarceration, those impacted by the incarceration of someone else or those who would ally with these students
