CA State Senate Supports College HomelessnessMarch 22, 2022
Welcome, Sagal!May 23, 2022
Wesley House Student Ambassador, Amber Miller, is an active voice for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated youth seeking to improve their futures. Coming from a place of experience, she is an incredible example of how a person can improve themselves, their circumstances, and their communities with dedication and passion.
Last weekend, Amber had the opportunity to speak with several incarcerated youth at two different detention facilities, share with them her experiences, talk about options, and introduce them to Project Rebound. In Amber’s own words:
We are excited to welcome Amber to our staff, who joined our team in late February. We are also incredibly proud of her enthusiasm and dedication to working with institutionalized youth to make sure they have their best shot at a brighter future.
Project Rebound, located on 14 college campuses in California, is a program that admits students across the CSU system who are motivated to succeed in a field of study that leads to a bachelor’s or master’s degree or beyond. Like Wesley House, Project Rebound provides support for formerly incarcerated individuals to succeed in higher education and beyond, reintegrate into their communities, and avoid recidivism. The program at SDSU is one of our strategic partners and we are proud to provide housing and support services to their students.
