Guardian Scholars Program

The CSULB Walter Pyramid

The LBCC Guardian Scholars Program works in conjunction with CSULB to serve current, former or emancipated foster youth who are enrolled and completing their college education. Our mission is to complete a seamless support network for foster youth on campus that empowers Guardian Scholars to become their best selves – personally & professionally. We provide students with academic & life supports needed to be successful in their education journey.

The Guardian Scholars program provides academic & career counseling, access to book grants, housing & food support, transportation services, community resources, life coach services, scholarships, tutoring, workshops, priority enrollment, and more.
