How We Came to Be:
In 2016, Continuing Education Counselors started visiting classrooms in all 5 Orange County jails. In 2018, Project RISE was formed as more formerly incarcerated and justice impacted students enrolled in classes here at SCC.
“It's great to be treated like a real human being, a person and not a former convict."
“I learned a long time ago when resources are available that can change your life, you don't sit there.
This [program] has been a miracle for me."
“Rancho Santiago has had part in not only in my education but also in my recovery of life."
