"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African Proverb

Umoja is a Swahili word for unity! We believe that students succeed in their academics when they are supported by a united community that provides a sense of purpose, mentorship, and resources. The Umoja Program helps African American and other students achieve personal growth by providing...

  • Community Support & Mentorship
  • Academic Counseling & Workshops
  • Service Learning & Field Trips
  • Scholarships & Vouchers

If you desire to excel as a student with the valuable support of mentors and peers, Umoja is for you! We invite you to take part in this valuable program during your time at Shasta College.
