Native Youth to College 2019

This campaign ended on July 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Pitzer College by clicking here!

Every summer, Pitzer College hosts about 25 Native American high school students for a two-week college preparatory program. Students gain valuable cultural knowledge from the program Elders while also learning the ins and outs of college applications, strengthening their writing skills, and taking a trip to the Chumash Cultural Village in Malibu where they study marine science. 


Elders, Native American scholars, and college mentors play vital roles in the program, and we also count on support from a broader community of people to make each year a success. Please help us fund this amazing program for summer 2019! Your gift will support vital components such as student travel, meals, and programming. Every dollar counts.


Together, we can honor the dedication and hard work of the college-bound Native American student participants and their families by providing tangible resources for their success!
