Welcome to the Gooden College Connection

The Gooden College Connection (formerly Gooden Family Scholarship Fund) is committed to helping academically capable, under-represented students achieve their goals toward higher education. We offer college preparatory services to selected high school scholars from West Contra Costa Unified School District and free public workshops about college.

GCC believes that all interested students deserve a chance to receive higher education, regardless of their economic status. GCC is taking steps in our community to make a difference in the lives of promising high school students by offering college application support. Through our Scholar Projectand Outreach Project we hope to increase the participation of low-income, under-represented students at major colleges and universities.

If you are interested in registering or applying to any of our programs, you may email us at info@goodencollegeconnection.org.
