Project Change is designed to build community, on and off campus, that will serve as social, emotional and academic support for student members. The program connects formerly incarcerated and system impacted students to resources and support services at Skyline College, such as priority registration, student supplies, and campus academic, professional and wellness services; as well as community resources. Register for Project Change to find out more.

Project Change Club provides students with a voice on campus and a social network of students, staff and faculty who understand many of the experiences and concerns that system impacted students have in going to college, and who want you to succeed.
