NEXUS 2.0: A College-to-Career Program Model is designed around integrated, college-level, and career-oriented coursework. With the right supports, NEXUS participants prove to themselves and future employers that they can succeed in the workplace, and in adult life. Tierra del Sol supports more than 170 young adults annually to succeed in school at California State University Northridge, LA Valley College, LA Mission College, LA Pierce College, Glendale College, College of the Canyons and the West Valley Occupational Center. NEXUS 2.0 is a three-phased model program which includes an intensive period of discovery, an extended time to conclude the educational path desired by each student and a short-term non-paid internship phase. This final one-year phase is intended to prepare newly launched college students into full immersion in the work environment to ensure a successful transition from student to employee.
