    I think this is a great opportunity for all emancipated foster youth. We all have struggles and hardhsips when trying to focus and stay in school. I think this should be available on all campuses of the peralta district so students who are not accessible to go to alameda can benefit from the program.

    This is a wonderful for students who are already at a disadvantage.
