JCYC Educational Talent Search

JCYC Educational Talent Search (JCYC ETS) is a federal TRIO program that has been funded by the U.S. Department of Education since 1979. The mission of JCYC is to identify, select and assist low-income youth who have the potential to be the first generation of their family to graduate from high school and enroll in a four-year college or university. 

In 2006, the U.S. Department of Education awarded JCYC ETS another Talent Search grant to serve 500 youth in Daly City and the surrounding San Mateo County area.
