Holistic in design, the program provides participants with sustained networks of learning and support over a critical time in their life: our CSUS program supports 6th and 7th graders with case management, academic support, and post secondary and employment exploration. There is also the option to continue with the traditional Work Force program that serves students in 8th grade - 12th grade.
