Barrio Logan College Institute promotes the pursuit of higher education for students who are traditionally underrepresented in college through after school programs that begin in 3rd grade and extend through college completion.
BLCI is a community-based organization located in Barrio Logan, a low-income Latino community in San Diego where only 38% of residents have a high school diploma and less than 3% have a bachelor's degree or higher. One hundred percent (100%) of the students BLCI serves will be of the first generation in their families to attend college, and most will be the first in their families to graduate from high school. In Barrio Logan, the average annual income for a family of four is $27,000. We prepare disadvantaged students and their families for college through FREE academic enrichment, skill building, self-esteem building, tutoring, mentoring, workshops, field trips, college and career exploration and application services. For our college-enrolled students, we provide scholarships and workforce or graduate school readiness activities.
