Outreach Success by the Numbers:

July-December 2016

 
 
 
  
The Cañada College Outreach Department has had a very busy semester holding a strong presence through the Peninsula, as well as cultivating new community-based relationships on behalf of the College. Since July, the team has attended 37 events, promoting Cañada College and connecting with more than 4,800 members of greater San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara County. Some of these events include:
 
  • 4th of July Parade - Redwood City
  • Facebook Farmers Market - Menlo Park
  • Fiestas Patrias - Redwood City
  • Edgewood Back to School Fair - San Bruno
  • World Journal News College Fair - Milpitas
  • Sana Sana Health Fair - San Mateo
  • Puente Health Fair - Pescadero
 
In addition, with the leadership of our Campus (student) Ambassadors, 21 campus tours were given to 642 potential students from 21 high schools and community organizations, including:
 
  • Redwood City Mayor, John Seybert
  • Woodside High School Summer Compass Program
  • Fusion Academy Tour
  • Sequoia Adult School
  • Homeschool Program
  • East Palo Alto High School
  • Redwood High School

Our College Recruiter, Mayra Arellano, has worked diligently to discover and cultivate new partnerships with local corporate and non-profit organizations. These efforts have generated new opportunities for Cañada College to not only hold a stronger presence in the community, but connect with potential students and guide them to Cañada. These groups include:
  • Facebook- Farmers Market
  • Edgewood Drop-In Center
  • Boys and Girls Club of the Peninsula
  • Familia Unidas
  • Escuela Popular, San Jose
  • Dream Club at Menlo Atherton High School
  • PTSA at Sequoia High School


The momentum not only continues -- it accelerates-- as the Outreach team heads into Spring, the busiest recruitment and enrollment semester of the year! Members of the College community are invited to participate in a number of upcoming events, including Cañada’s annual open house, Connect to College Night, on April 27, 2017 as well as a series of Priority Enrollment Program (PEP) events on April 10, 12, 13, 18 and May 17, 2017.
