What is Sacramento Sister Circle's College Bound Luncheon?

An annual luncheon celebrating the academic success of young Black women, high school graduating seniors, in Sacramento and surrounding areas. 

This year Sacramento Sister Circle’s leadership team, #CBL planning committee, and members will host college readiness virtual sessions and an in-person 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 their first year of college and mentoring and sponsoring relationships are fostered during their college journey. 

We have "graduated" and celebrated nine cohorts of young Black women and are actively supporting recent cohorts. This completely volunteer and self sufficient "Sistership" has impacted over 100 young women! #CBL2022 #CBL10 #OMG10

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.

- Tamir, #CBL2020 Student

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.

- Alana #CBL2020 Student

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.

- Semira #CBL2020 Student

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.
