      De Anza Umoja PaintNite Fundraiser

      Please come support the De Anza Umoja Program in our first fundraiser event ! The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise funds to support our students with opportunities for academic exposure  through schloarship. This also will serve as an opportunity to have our community members come out and converse and get to know the students who we are impacting. The Night will consist of Painting Networking Community Building Music/Food The following is a student testimony of  what support means to her. "Being a part of the Umoja program is something that has been life-changing for me. As a young Black Women where I grew up [I had no access] to what life was like after middle school or even high school. Once we moved and I came to De Anza community college and found the Umoja program I was given the chance to attend the Umoja Statewide Conference which represented a few first for me. It was my first time getting on a plane, traveling outside the Bay Area and the first time I experienced going to a University. Without this exposure I don’t know how, if and when and I would've even had this type of opportunity. Now that I have gone ,I am more determined and motivated to transfer and obtain my B.S. in Nursing. This program has been extremely helpful to me because I am the first person in my family to go to college so I know now that I need help beyond their ability. I was going through this unknown educational journey alone until I joined the Umoja community and now with support of counselors like Ms. Kassie and the resources the program offers I know I have a fighting chance. I will forever be grateful for the support and opportunities that the Umoja Program has given me and hope we are able to get support."                                                                                                        - SR, Student testimony If you are unable to attend but want to still donate please sponsor a student or donate to our cause.
