WHO WE ARE
Metas was created with the goal of making higher education a reality for the youth in our community. We recognize that many of our students will be the first in their family to go to college.
We recognize that the college process can be intimidating and we make a conscious effort to work with both our students and their families to make the process as easy as possible.
From career and major exploration to financial aid award packages, our program supports students at each step of the college process.
During the summer, a group of rising juniors and seniors have the opportunity to participate in the Metas Southern California College Tour. For 3 to 4 days, we take students to visit college campuses around southern California These schools are not easily accessible to students in our community and Metas encourages students to look at colleges and universities both inside and outside of the Bay Area.
Periodically, we invite guest speakers,with diverse backgrounds, to speak to our students about their personal and academic journey. Speakers range from professional engineers, grad school students, entrepreneurs, and community leaders. Whenever possible we invite speakers who are Metas Alumni or have grown up in a community similar to our students. Providing speakers that are relatable to our students help to inspire and motivate them towards success.
