2018-2019 Level Up Application
Level Up is a youth-led movement designed to help students like you succeed in college. The goal is to ensure that you earn your degree and thrive in all aspects of life beyond graduation.

How It Works: College students from the LA area are referred to Level Up as either First Year Students (incoming freshmen) or Ambassadors (upperclassmen). Once selected for the program, First Year Students are matched with Ambassadors on the campuses they will be attending in fall.

During Summer: Ambassadors and First Year Students each attend training events before meeting in-person at a full-day, summer matching event.

During the School Year: Ambassadors and First Year Students meet regularly to work through discussion topics, complete fun activities, build college and career readiness skills, and connect with the right folks to find personalized resources on campus.

Big Picture: The Ambassador-First Year Student relationship is not only about mentorship, but also about building real friendships, learning from one another, and building a movement around YOUR student voice.

How It All Fits Together: The Level Up program is overseen by a network of college access organizations (the Southern California College Access Network, or 'SoCal CAN'). The college advising programs you worked with in high school are all part of SoCal CAN. They recommended you to be in the Level Up program, and they rely upon SoCal CAN to continue supporting you during college - through Level Up.
