Guardian Scholars Mission

Guardian Scholars is dedicated to providing services, support, and a place of solitude for any current/and former foster youth who are admitted to California State University Long Beach. We advocate and ensure that every guardian scholar is equipped with all the necessary tools and resources to thrive at the BEACH. We offer services such as academic counseling, financial aid advising, tutoring, and mentorship. We also make an effort to connect each guardian scholar to a myriad of on and or off-campus community resources throughout their academic career to assist in their student success! 

Guardian Scholars Vision

Guardian Scholars is a program where we create an affirming community of care where students can learn, grow, thrive, and succeed.  

Guardian Scholars Values:

Guardian Scholars values community.We are intentional about creating a culture and space where students come first. Compassion is our superpower; we allow students to express who they are and what they need. We care and are committed to cultivating healthy relationships by collaborating and partnering with both the on-campus and the local community resources that support and help meet the needs of our guardian scholars' students!
