Merritt College

TGI’s Street Scholars Peer Mentoring Program was thrilled and honored to recently receive a grant in the amount of $39,700 from the Peralta Community College District! The funds will be used to expand Street Scholars’ services to formerly incarcerated students at Merritt College. We are grateful to the Merritt College administration and faculty for supporting the efforts of Street Scholars and our vision to ensure the academic success of adults with incarceration experience. ¬†We are especially grateful to Merritt College President, Dr. Norma Ambriz-Galaviz, Lasana Hotep, Merritt’s Dean of Special Programs, Dr. William Love, Professor Emeritus (and Street Scholars’ Personal Rock Star!), and Dr. Anita Black, Professor Emeritus. Thank you for supporting Street Scholars and the non-traditional students we serve. GO TEAM!
