What is Community F.I.R.S.T.?
Community F.I.R.S.T. (First Generation, Increasing, Retention, Success and Transfer)
is a student-run club open to all students on campus to be involved and supporting first generation
college students at Cañada. We organize campus events such as movie nights, workshops,
and activities to raise campus awareness and build a supportive community for first generation
college students and allies.
We also host fundraisers to provide book vouchers for mentees in Bridge to Opportunities
Peer Mentorship Program such as the Annual Redwood City Oktoberun, the
Thanksgiving Turkey Drawing and the Professional Mixer.
Cañada community would like us to bring speakers and connect to the local
community. We want to continue to collaborate with other student clubs.
