Black Scholars


About Black Scholars

The LAVC Black Scholars Program is a mentorship program, designated to serve African American/Black students on the Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) campus. We aim to help students define their future, direct their path, ignite their passion, and acquire their dream. This program is strategically designed to increase the retention of Black students at LAVC, but also to increase the matriculation of Black students into four-year institutions. In order to achieve this success, Black students will be welcomed into the Black Scholars Network.

Black Scholars Network

LAVC’s Black Scholars Network is a community of administrators, teaching faculty, counselors, staff, and students who are committed to the academic success of Black students. Within this network, Black students receive free counseling from the Student Equity Counselor, monthly meet-ups with other Black Scholars participants for community buildingcultural activities and events to promote cultural enrichment, campus and community referral to ensure that the students are aware of the abundance of resources catered to their success, California college tours & Historically Black College and University (HBCU) tours, and much more.
