College and Career Leadership Conference

This year our annual conference will focus on the launch of PCF’s Online Learning Center.  Scholars walk through this new customized curriculum designed to meet the challenges that are unique to first-generation college students.

We will continue to hold the Career Exploration Fair as part of the three-day conference in a virtual setting as it allows us to reach a broader spectrum of individuals from companies and industry sectors that are both in and outside the Bay Area.
