What is CARE?
The Cooperative Agencies Resources for Education (CARE) program is a state funded
program for single parents attending Allan Hancock College. The CARE program works
in conjunction with EOPS to provide support services to students who receive CalWORKs
(state cash aid) benefits in the household. In addition, Allan Hancock College is
home to the first and only CARE center established in the State of California. At
the CARE Center students are welcome to come in for tutoring sessions, utilize our
computers and print for free, see their academic counselor, and they can bring their
children to play in our children’s nook. The CARE Center is a child friendly environment
where all CARE students are welcome and have a place to call home at Allan Hancock

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
