BRIGHT FUTURES STORIES

First-Generation Task Force

Through Bright Futures and First-Generation Task Force partners, a full spectrum of support is provided for PCHS students who are the first in their families to go to college. 

Dream Big is an award-winning 8-week PCHS summer school class that prepares students for the academic rigor of AP classes and the ACT – and helps students excel in post-secondary education.

Latinos in Action (LIA) classes, offered from 6th - 12th grade, teach leadership & community service skills, and focus on the strength of students' bilingual capabilities and multicultural experiences.

Finally, Bright Futures encompasses:

  • Student & family college knowledge
  • A cohort "crew" which provides positive peer influence 
  • 1-1 college coaching before and through college
  • Four-year budgets & planning for the “hidden costs” of college
  • Personal and professional mentorship from a network of staff, volunteers, board, and community members

After high school, Bright Futures shifts into high gear as the work is done to support students as they get → through ← college. 

The continuity of support in college has surfaced as a singularly critical piece for BF student success, and resources, like a new College Program Manager, are being added to ensure the success of the program continues to grow.
