About Student Support Services

The Student Support Services Department has been working hard to bring quality programs to the students of Santa Cruz County since 1995. Each year we provide a variety of academic and other supportive services to over 5,000 students throughout the county. These services are rooted in the philosophy of youth development that emphasizes a caring and respectful community that values the contribution youth can make in determining their own futures. We believe that strong collaborations with school districts, governmental and community-based agencies, parents, businesses and a variety of other community members are vital to the success of our youth.
