Journey offers services to help students achieve their transfer goals and become stronger students. In addition to the services listed below, Journey is committed to supporting students with their academic challenges and connecting them with other on or off campus resources that may assist them.
Summer Bridge is our two-week program designed to facilitate the transfer from high school to community college for incoming freshman students. Journey Summer Bridge students are introduced to ARC campus resources, student support services, classes, and information on the necessary steps to begin their college career successfully.
Journey has three counselors available exclusively for Journey students. This provides students with greater access to meet with a counselor and more individual attention to discuss their academic progress and future goals.
Our counselors and staff support students in fulfilling the necessary academic requirements to successfully transfer to a four-year institution. In addition, our resources and curriculum requirements prepare students to be competitive applicants for any four-year institutions or scholarships they may be interested in pursuing.
Journey helps monitor our students' academic progress and make sure they aren't falling behind in their classes. Staff and peer mentors are also available to assist students with homework and other assignments.
For students who are unsure what subject to major in or what careers interest them, our staff is prepared to provide students with the guidance to determine their academic and career paths. Students are also directed to other resources on campus that can assist them with these subjects.
Peer Mentors are an essential part of the Journey Program to provide individual support and information regarding on-campus support and community resources, including but not limited to academic, financial aid, career, and transfer advising. Peer Mentors will engage and develop working relationships with students and assist in addressing the specific academic needs of each student. Peer Mentors also facilitate program requirements based on where the student is in the program curriculum.
Aside from other tutoring services on campus, Journey has math, English, and science tutoring available exclusively for students enrolled in the program. Tutors are available throughout the week and are scheduled by individual appointment.
Every semester Journey schedules trips to neighboring northern California university campuses free of charge. In addition, Journey coordinates with other programs on campus who may be providing campus visits to reserve space for our students to attend. Please see our Campus Tours page for further information.
Through our staff, various services, resources, events, and office space, Journey strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to grow academically and as members of the campus community. Our office space is available for students to study, use the computers, print up to 6 pages for free a day, socialize with other Journey students, eat lunch, or just spend time between classes.
Journey hosts a variety of workshops throughout the semester through our counselors and campus partnerships to provide students with the information and skills they need to successfully graduate and transfer to a four-year institutions. Our curriculum also requires and encourages students to attend non-Journey workshops on and off campus. Please see our Workshop Opportunities page for further information.

Our staff directs students to campus, government, and private financial aid and scholarship resources and is available to assist them in completing the necessary applications to receive aid.
