Friends, family, students, elected official and supporters celebrated 30 amazing years of the Metas program at Contra Costa College

Event Sponsors




It was 30 years in the making.  It took 6 months to plan. We celebrated for 6 hours!


Over the last 30 years Metas has touched the lives countless students. Students are encouraged to hope and dream.  They are given the tools that build confidence to do more than they even dreamed possible. Their confidence inspires their families and many enroll in college themselves.


We heard from students, alumni, and founders about the impacts of Metas on their lives.  Frank Hernandez, spoke of the stringent requirements he demanded of his students.


There are so many to thank for helping us to make this a magical night.  The event PROGRAM is available for your convenience.  Please take a moment to look at our sponsors and silent auction donors; we’ve provided website links for your services in appreciation of their donations. Please let them know you heard about them at the Metas event.
