What is the College Bound Luncheon?
An annual College Bound Luncheon. A “Sistership" celebrating the academic success of young Black Women in Sacramento and surrounding areas. Sacramento Sister Circle’s Leadership Team and members host a college readiness virtual celebration with valuable resources, information, and gifts for each student.
After the event, ongoing support, resources, financial blessings, and gifts are shared with the students for their first year of college and over the course of their four years in college.
We have "graduated" and celebrated eight cohorts of young Black women, and are actively supporting recent cohorts. This completely volunteer and self-sufficient "Sistership" has impacted over 50 young women.

Thank you for reaching out, I am doing well and have found myself happier doing my classes from home due to it providing me a flexible schedule and more time to do things I want in between... Some of my favorite courses that I took were human rights, Biology of addiction and psychology because they provided information and skills that I will need to go to medical school in the future... Despite 2020 being rough I enjoyed going to school online and learning some very interesting material.

My first semester was alright, a little hard but I had fun! I work for my school at the Sports Network and it’s really cool! Thank you for the support and kind thoughts.
- Kymora #CBL2020 Student
Thank you so much for reaching out and I am very appreciative of the financial gift... I've been doing very well, and I had a successful first semester. Since my school is on the east coast, I had a few 5am classes due to the different time zones! But I've made many connections, joined a club organization, and ended my fall semester with a 3.75 GPA. During the semester, I premiered my first short film Wake Up.

Thank you so much for checking in on me. This first semester of my first year of college has been a consistent journey of hardship, but I am very determined so I'm making it through! ...I am excited for what this next year brings and where I am headed!
- Yael #CBL2020 Student
My first semester of college was great, all of my teachers were supportive, I made a lot of lifetime friends, and I made the dean's list... I truly appreciate you all for checking in on me. Thank you for the financial gift as well.

I had a great Fall semester ending with a 3.5 GPA. I am now taking on extra courses and will be taking on summer classes to try to graduate early.
