College and Career Day is a community-wide effort spearheaded by the UC Berkeley, Center for Educational Partnerships and the Berkeley Alliance. The goal of College and Career Day is to create a college-going culture in the City of Berkeley and help our children and youth visualize and plan post-secondary option pathways. This happens when educators, youth workers, parents and other adults engage children in conversations, lessons, and other college and career promoting activities.
This year our goal is to have at least 5,000 Berkeley students participate in activities that promote college and career aspirations. We are inviting people from all walks of life to share their educational and career journey with children, students, and co-workers, as we celebrate, inspire, and promote vital post-secondary options for all.
Picture Yourself There!
Research shows that a college-going culture is essential in helping students see college as a viable personal option. To inspire all Berkeley students (Pre K-12) to envision their own educational journey and provide critical college and career access knowledge, the UC Berkeley, Center of Educational Partnerships and the Berkeley Alliance proudly introduces the City of Berkeley’s 1st Annual College and Career Day. This day will serve to demystify post-secondary options and inspire students to Picture Themselves There!
"Young men and women, study yourself. See who you really want to be and as soon as you see it, say it. Put it out into the universe. You must say it and then go about the business of becoming it."
