Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI)
Founded in 1996, Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the pursuit of higher education for disadvantaged students through after school programs. Our model begins in the 3rd grade, and support students all the way through college completion. BLCI serves approximately 200 students a year from third grade through college, and about 100 of their parents. BLCI services include free tutoring, fieldtrips, academic advising, mentoring, scholarships and parent training. To-date 100% of BLCI high school graduates have enrolled in colleges and universities.
The organization is growing in size and scope. BLCI is currently opening another site in Chula Vista serving an additional 75 students and 30 parents. The Chula Vista program will grow at a rate of at least 20 students per year, with additional expansion opportunities in other neighborhoods also possible.
