We are excited to launch the pilot year of our College Ambassador program at three local universities: CSU San Marcos, UC San Diego, and San Diego State. The College Ambassador Program is designed to empower upper class students to take on leadership roles as mentors and help provide incoming first-year students a successful transition to college.
Our College Ambassadors are trained in mentorship, practical leadership, and community building skills so that they are prepared to help first-generation students strengthen their self confidence, find their voice, and grow into pillars of support that future program graduates can aspire toward.
We are proud to introduce our first College Ambassador!

Tell us about yourself.
Hello, my name is Jacqueline Garcia and I will be a senior at California State University, San Marcos. I will be majoring in Sociology and minoring in Communications spring of 2020. I was born and raised in sunny San Diego, California. I am a Point Loma High School and Reality Changers alumni class of 2016. I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success on campus which is the nation’s largest leadership honor society. My family is my daily motivation to keep thriving and succeeding in life no matter the obstacles I may encounter along the way. I aspire to receive my Master’s Degree in Social Work to either become an academic school counselor or a medical social worker. I am excited to be able to provide my skills and knowledge to the incoming freshmen at CSUSM.
What are you most looking forward to as an ambassador?
I am looking forward to providing support to the incoming reality changers students by helping them transition into an exciting and unforgettable environment that will turn into their new home.
