It’s no secret that the Boost program alumni have a way of sticking around long after they enter college. They return to the Boost program, this time as mentors for the current high-school participants. Why would these busy college students and business professionals want to do so? We asked our Boost graduates to share their thoughts about their experiences in our program.


Samil Aguirre - Boost Class of 2015

"To this day, I still utilize what I learned in Boost in my classes at SJSU and professionally."

Christian Andrews - Boost Class of 2010

"Boost changed my life. It has single handedly taught me everything I know about business, and more importantly it has helped me get that much closer to achieving my dreams."

Elizabeth Purdy - Boost Class of 2008

"I continue to keep in touch with the amazing Boost staff and currently serve on the Boost @BerkeleyHaas Alumni Outreach Committee, because I am thankful to have been a part of such an impactful program. "
