A First Year Experience support program designed to equip Leeward Community College’s first year students with navigating through their freshman year with a sense of purpose, sense of belonging, and sense of self-efficacy and all necessary components to academic success. 

This program’s goal is to help students set a firm foundation for academic excellence, graduating from Leeward CC with an associate’s degree and eventually transferring to a 4-year University to earn a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Program benefits include course sequencing, holistic support, peer mentorship, financial aid, scholarship assistance, and academic achievement award, aspirational goal setting that is culturally compatible, and growth-mindset skills.
