BACKGROUND

Since 1996, BLU Educational Services/Foundation has worked with communities and schools to address the challenging national problem of low college attendance among students with limited income and opportunities. 

  

OUR MISSION

The mission of the COLLEGE EXODUS PROJECT (CEP) is to assist students in obtaining undergraduate or graduate degrees from accredited colleges and universities, with the intent that they contribute to the Inland Empire economy through entrepreneurship, employment, and/or volunteer service.  We accomplish our mission by providing comprehensive college information, assistance and support to help students with admissions, financial aid, retention and graduation from public and private institutions throughout the country.

THE NEED

The College Exodus Project was created out of a need to increase the number of underrepresented students who attend college from the Inland Empire.  It is also responsive to budget cuts to K-12 college preparation/outreach programs in California.  The CEP is a collaborative program focusing on service coordination, enhancement, and expansion and is implemented in local schools, churches and community organizations.
