Enlace Mission

The mission of the Enlace Program is to help Chicanx/Latinx students successfully complete the academic core (English, Math, and Science) and to guide Chicanx/Latinx students effectively through transfer and occupational courses in a timely manner​.

Enlace Description

Enlace, which began in 1983, is an academic program supported by counseling, tutoring, community mentoring, and student organizations.  Enlace serves underrepresented Chicanx/Latinx  students of San José and nearby communities.


To participate in the program, students must make an appointment with the Enlace Counselor to determine if they are eligible based on an academic assessment (ie. placement scores).
