boost@BerkeleyHaas Serving Since 1989

Boost@BerkeleyHaas prepares and supports students throughout their high school journey through various workshops that focus on college preparedness, life skills development, professional development, case study projects and mentorship. Our mission is to inspire, elevate and support first-generation, under-resourced youth’s academic and career pursuits to realize their true leadership potential.

Supporting Students Where They Are

Boost@BerkeleyHaas supports students throughout their entire high school journey. Each cohort has specific goals to keep students on course to meet graduation and college requirements. Boost@BerkeleyHaas has the ability to engage with students on the UC Berkeley Haas campus, high school campuses, and via one on one meetings with the DCAC College Advisor and other Boost staff.

The Boost program is proud to be a part of the Institute for Business & Social Impact and organized by the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business staff, faculty, and student community.
