Mission Graduates student holding sign for SFU saying I want to be a teacher

Yesterday, Mission youth from Marshall, Bryant, Flynn, Everett, BVHM, Cesar Chavez, One Purpose, James Lick, and John O’Connell marched through the Mission with a message – I am going to College!

Over 400 students took to the streets, chanting C-O-L-L-E-G-E College Is The Place For Me, and celebrating the path to college.

The crowd convened on John O’Connell High School, rallied around students working towards college, and met representatives from local colleges and universities.  A college-themed carnival and and a photo booth meant fun for all.

March to College was also a day to celebrate students who have been Reclassified as English Language Proficient this year – ensuring they are ready to take college preparatory courses in middle and  high school.

A big thank you to Mission Graduates, Jamestown Community Center, Buena Vista Child Care, and First Graduate staff for giving our youth a chance to show the neighborhood what they’re made of.
