Purpose and Services

College Leap at IVC is a local chapter of a UC Berkeley-founded national nonprofit which aims to holistically support community college students on their transfer journeys. College Leap provides valuable leadership, mentorship, and internship opportunities to students through hosting panels and competitions. Since four-year universities tend to have a much stronger alumni network, internship and recruitment resources, and a variety of student competitions, our mission is to bridge that gap at IVC by supplementing the resource base that is currently available to our community college students.

College Leap at IVC delivers on this mission by hosting business plan competitions to promote entrepreneurship among students of all majors, connecting them with internship opportunities at startups, and organizing alumni panels with IVC graduates to share their advice on the transfer process. By creating opportunities for students to shine academically and professionally through our events, we seek to ease the transfer process and boost students’ skills and achievements which they can showcase when applying to their dream schools.
