Foster Youth Services

The Bear Cub Scholars and NextUp Programs provide services to current or former foster youth attending Santa Rosa Junior College. Our mission is to empower our students by providing them with the support they need to reach their academic goals.  We offer academic counseling, financial assistance, and educational resources to encourage a successful and enriching college experience for all of the students we serve. We are currently offering support and services remotely through the end of the Spring 2021 semester.


  Services can include: graduation program, orchid and cowbell

  Academic Counseling

  Priority Registration

  Book & Supply Grants

  On-campus Dining Hall Meal Cards

  Emergency Grants

  Parking Permits

  Referrals for On-campus and Off-campus Resources

  Emergency Food & Gas Cards

We also offer our Bear Cub Academy every summer for new incoming students.  This two-day program is designed to prepare students for their transition to college. For more information about any of our programs, please email or call and leave a message at 707-521-7812.  You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
