Welcome to the College Opportunity Programs! We are a program of the School of Education’s Resourcing Excellence in Education (REEd) Center. Our mission is to increase student preparation for postsecondary opportunities through academic enrichment, academic advising, motivational activities and K-12 partnerships. These federally funded programs—Educational Talent Search, GEAR UP and Upward Bound—are administered by the UC Davis School of Education and serve middle and high school students in Colusa, Glenn, Sacramento, Shasta, Siskiyou, Solano, Tehama and Yolo counties.
Since 2005, more than 18,000 Sacramento-area school children have benefited from Words Take Wing: Honoring Diversity in Children’s Literature. This annual celebration, held each February, gives students the opportunity to hear about the personal journeys and creative processes of acclaimed authors and illustrators of diverse children’s literature whose stories about Native American heritage, Asian culture, African American culture, and Latino identity, among many others, allow them to explore a wide range of perspectives and world views.

With Youth-focused Citizen and Community Science (YCCS), youth contribute to authentic science. They can do this through data collection, but also interpreting or sharing findings. But what does this mean for science learning? To answer this question, we have been researching implementation of YCCS projects to explore when and how YCCS works best.
