Help Support the Emergency Aid Campaign!
This January, The Friends of Chabot College will officially open the third round of applications for the COVID-19 Emergency Aid Campaign.

The Emergency Aid Campaign was developed in March 2020 in response to COVID-19. This rapid emergency aid campaign has distributed over $340,000 in aid to Chabot College students. Although COVID-19 vaccines are beginning to roll out, students still face economic hardships and are in need of support.

Consider donating today to the Emergency Aid campaign to help support Chabot College students!

Inspire Students!
Career Panelists Needed
Interested in inspiring students? As online education continues into 2021, Chabot Alumni and Friends are seeking career panelists to engage with our amazing students at Chabot and across our partner middle and high schools.

A career panel is a powerful way for students to engage with professionals, learn about a variety of careers, connect what is being learned in courses with the skills needed for success, and find inspiration from members of their own community.
Career panels are typically one-hour and include multiple panelists who take turns sharing their educational/career journey, responding to the panel moderator's questions, and answering Q & A. All career panels are currently online, though we hope to offer some panels in-person, in the future, when it is safe.

Interested in becoming a career panelist? Please complete the Career Panelist Interest Form below, and a Chabot employee will follow-up.
