- Rising Scholars
Las Positas College partners with the Federal Corrections Institute (FCI) Dublin, local women’s prison, to offer access to educational services and opportunities for careers to incarcerated students. Our program, Rising Scholars, is committed to serving students who have been impacted by the legal system, alongside other colleges supporting these students, proudly forming the Rising Scholars Network.
Non-Credit Business Academy
The Non-Credit Business Academy launched in Fall 2019, is a short-term program that offers incarcerated students the opportunity to complete two certificates in Small Business Management and Customer Service. Completing seven courses in only 15 weeks, students will learn practical, real world skills to advance their career options.
Women’s Business Initiative
The Women’s Business Initiative is a contract initiative with the Federal Bureau of Prisons in which a cohort of women students pursue an Associate’s degree in Business Administration. Students will gain skills required for the field of business and academic credits eligible for transfer to California’s public university systems and other institutions of higher education. This program was launched in Fall 2021 with a cohort of 15 students with an intended completion date of May 2024.
