The Richmond Public Library has unveiled a new College & Career Video Series aimed at helping local students develop a plan for post-high school graduation.

Teen Library Services Coordinator Angela Cox collaborated with Doug Harris Media to develop the six-part video series for students to use as a tool as they begin the process of making important life decisions about their future.

The video series’ topics include: College & Career Pathways; Four-year College; Community College; Construction & Building Trades; Richmond Promise; and the College is Real program at local high schools.










“The resource helps students and parents begin the important conversation and formalize a plan on the course a student takes after high school,” said Cox. “Some students may choose pursing a four-year degree, community college, or go directly into the workforce. Whichever path is chosen, the six-part video series examines resource programs on high school campuses, and programs in Contra Costa.”

According to Cox, the series was funded by the Friends of the Richmond Public Library and the Environmental Community Investment Agreement (ECIA), part of a $90 million community benefits agreement between the City of Richmond and Chevron connected to the $1 billion Refinery Modernization Project.
