C2 Walnut Creek Program Director Julie Kim is a California native who attended high school in Burbank, CA before attending the University of California at Los Angeles. Julie loves that her position with C2 gives her the opportunity to work with a large group of young, motivated individuals, helping them to overcome their academic struggles and find success in and out of the classroom. “The goal at C2 is to ensure solid academic and life skills,” Julie says, “and I am glad to be a part of helping students achieve these long-term goals.”

A C2 student begins his or her program with an academic assessment designed to pinpoint the student’s unique strengths and weaknesses. With these results, Julie meets with the student and his or her parents to establish academic goals and create a personalized study plan to meet those goals.
