CAFYES - Newly renamed NextUp

The Cooperating Agencies Foster Youth Educational Support (CAFYES) program has been renamed NextUp by the California Community College Chancellor's Office and "was chosen to help foster youth feel encouraged and excited about the next chapter in their lives.  NextUp  provides “over and above” support services for current and former foster youth attending Allan Hancock College.  The NextUp (CAFYES) program works in conjunction with EOPS to provide, intake and assessment, academic counseling, peer mentoring, tutoring services, and a computer lab for your homework, study time, and printing needs.  Other ancillary services may be available to assist you with transportation, food court vouchers, and assistance purchasing your textbooks.  The NextUp (CAFYES) program invites you to stop by our center to meet our friendly staff and get to know your fellow peers.

Medical Assisting Student

"I am getting the hands-on training that I need for my medical assisting certification. Hancock is convenient for me to commute to and is very affordable. The instructors are very helpful and knowledgeable. After this program, I plan on getting either my RN or going on to get my physician assistant license."
