On July 22, 2023, Laney College APASS Program celebrated the graduation of APIs Mobilize’s Mobilize Youth Leadership Program, a collaborative effort with Berkeley City College. 

The program empowers students with leadership skills, advocacy knowledge, and mentorship, while speaker mentors act as role models fostering confidence and discipline for high school success and college readiness. Graduates of the program each received a scholarship of $400 after completing the leadership training course on the Laney College campus.  

APIs Mobilize Founder Dr. Annie V. Lam congratulated the students and said, “I am incredibly proud of our students and their remarkable achievements. I am deeply thankful for all the partners who have served as a constant source of inspiration and mentors to our students. Their guidance and support help our students dream big and provide them with a roadmap for success. Together, we are nurturing a generation of future leaders who will undoubtedly make a positive impact on our world .  

Laney College President Rudy Besikof addressed the class and joined in recognizing their achievement “place quote here”.  Berkeley City College Dean Martin de Muchas Flores, one of the program co-sponsors, said “quote” .
