Our College Bound pathway support program was founded at our San Pedro Club in 2002 with only 30 high school student partcipants. Since its implementation the program has raised members' graduation rate from less than 50% in 2002 to 99% in 2022, with 94% of those graduates going to a four-year university or two-year college.
Today, we operate College Bound across our San Pedro, Wilmington, and Habor City/Harbor Gateway regions with over 2,000 high school participants. In a partnership with LAUSD, we recently expanded to serve youth at 21 sites across the Los Angeles Harbor and South Los Angeles.
