Berkeley City College, FELI

Berkeley City College (BCC) launched their ACE program in the Fall of 2009. Since that time BCC has developed numerous course innovations for diverse student populations. They are currently in partnership with the City of Berkeley's 20/20 Vision - Completion Velocity program which supports youth with college and career readiness.  This event will provide the Completion Velocity team an opportunity to experience the ACE model as they explore ways to leverage the ACE curriculum with Berkeley youth. This event is also open to BCC employees. Contact Chris Lebo-Planas ( for more information.

“The concept of inside-out learning was a major shift in my idea of what a teacher does. Now, I see the student-teacher relationship as collaborative.
