San Diego Gateway to College and Career

Young adults ages 18-24 who did not finish school, and who are not currently working, can connect with San Diego Continuing Education (SDCE) and the San Diego Gateway for help deciding on a career, next steps, and to find the help they need to succeed.

SDCE supports young adults who are accomplishing educational and workforce goals. As a first class, students participate in an ACE Foundations Personal Growth Course that assists students with learning more about themselves, their working styles, all while building skills needed to do well in classes, college and life!

Free classes and career training. Enrolling now.



Visit the Gateway to Opportunity Youth Resource Center at the Educational Cultural Complex. The Resource Center supports, informs and empowers students. It is also home to a student computer lab and has dedicated academic counseling available for students.

Appointments are encouraged. Drop-ins are welcome!
