Cerritos College, LINC Program (Leaders Involved in Creating Change) for Foster Youth and Kinship Care

The LINC Program is a partnership between the EOPS, Financial Aid and Foster and Kinship Care. It links foster youth with support services on and off campus to ensure a successful transition from foster care to independent living.
Information about on-campus student support services such as the Academic Support Center, CalWORKS, Career Center, Counseling, and Student Health Center, as well as the Los Angeles County Independent Living Program (ILP) for former foster youth is provided. LINC addresses some of the challenges youth have including transportation, housing and access to academic support services. The program also organizes social events and activities for the students. Students are succeeding and making progress toward their educational goals and receive certificates recognizing their hard work.
