East Bay Consortium was established in 1978 as part of the California Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP) administered by the California Student Aid Commission. The East Bay Consortium of Educational Institutions, Inc, (EBC) was founded to develop and improve educational opportunities for students in the East Bay. EBC's goal is to provide these opportunities by developing student and parent programs, improving teacher instruction in mathematics, providing opportunities for college students to explore teaching as a career, and working in conjunction with other educational programs who share similar goals.
Since 1988, in addition to providing a variety of college information services, the EBC has offered successful high quality academic enrichment programs for urban and mostly underserved youth. A critical component of the Consortium's work is the empowerment and innovative training of teachers.
The East Bay Consortium's mission is to increase the number of students finishing high school and enrolling in postsecondary institutions, through intensive educational enrichment. We offer many resources to help improve educational opportunities for students. Through these resources and our efforts, we promote their success in secondary school and in college. Most of our programs serve primarily students from low-income families or from environments with historically low college attendance rates.
