Outreach 2017 Success by the Numbers 2017

The Cañada College Outreach Department has had a very busy year holding a strong presence throughout the Peninsula, as well as cultivating new community-based relationships on behalf of the College. In 2017, the Outreach team has attended 155 events, promoting Cañada College and connecting with more than 13,000 members of greater San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara County. Some of these events include:

·         Transition to Independence Fair

·         Immigrant Health Forum

·         San Mateo County Benefits & Health Fair

·         Port Fest

·         Street Team: Music on the Square and Movies on the Square

·         Reading Circle

·         Jingle Ball- iHeart Radio

·         Lunar Festival

In addition, with the leadership of Campus (student) Ambassadors, 50 campus tours were given to around 500 potential students from 20 high schools and community organizations, including:

·         Edgewood

·         Pilarcitos High School

·         Rise Institute

·         Baden High School

·         San Mateo Adult School

·         Menlo Atherton High School

The College 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: 

·         Catholic Charities

·         University Art

·         SFUSD

·          Bay Shore Christian Ministries, New Creation in East Palo Alto

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 26, 2018 as well as a series of Priority Enrollment Program (PEP) events on April 9, 10, 23-25, May 8, 9 and May 23.
