"Before joining Road Map, I was a loner, now I'm more outgoing and social and I even joined the Soccer team which it turns out I love and I'm really pretty good at it. That experience made me realize that I'm a team player I never thought of myself as anything other than a loner"

"I would not be doing as well as I am now if it weren't for Road Map. Before I started with Road Map, I was on Academic Probation. Now I'm graduating next semester with my AA degree and applying to CSU EB in October. I would not be doing as well if I were still at it on my own. I didn't take things seriously and I didn't know how to get the help I needed."

"Before Road Map, I was struggling,” says Justin, a Los Medanos College student enrolled in the Emergency Medical Services program. Justin was focused, working and going to school, but unsure how he would pay the many costs. Road Map college and career counselor Dionne helped Justin apply for financial aid, register for classes, and manage his time better. She helped him get a part-time job as an EMT driver, giving him much needed experience. Says Justin, “Dionne and Road Map made all the difference! I’m on my way to the career I’ve always wanted."
