In partnership with California Volunteers (Office of the Governor) and AmeriCorps, SF State is proud to be among the selected 45 campuses statewide for the inaugural #CaliforniansForAll College Corps. ICCE is the SF State campus lead for this program.

#CaliforniansForAll College Corps will help create debt-free college pathways for low-income students who commit to serve.

SF State is one of the sixteen CSU campuses to receive this honor and we are excited to invite students to consider making community service a core part of their college experience. SF State’s College Corps will create pathways for 50 students (8 positions will be designated for AB 540 CA Dream students) to earn academic credit and receive up to $10,000 in funding in exchange for a commitment to serve 450 hours in a community service assignment during a full academic year. 

This initiative is the first of its kind in the state of California and will provide opportunities for college students to tackle state-wide challenges and support and learn from community organizations working in key priority areas. The focus of the program is to:

  • Engage college students in meaningful internship opportunities that build leadership skills, civic responsibility, and self-confidence;

  • Help low-income students from diverse backgrounds graduate college with less debt;

  • Support the work of community-based organizations as they build more equitable communities and address societal challenges related to climate change and environmental justice, food insecurity, and K-12 education.

Conduct local community-based service in one of three critical focus areas:

Empowerment through tutoring and mentoring services to support the academic and social development of K-12 students

Tackle environmental and climate issues through stewardship, restoration, and nursery maintenance 

Increase food security through food distribution, Cal Fresh assistance, and regenerative food production
