CAMP Student of the Year

  1. 1. Jairo Yobani Maldonado-Contreras is a relent- less knowledge seeking student with a desire to help others through scientific research. His work ethic originates from witnessing his mother, Rosa, single-handedly provide for him and his grandpar- ents in Mexico by working the Santa Maria straw- berry fields each day. At a young age, Jairo realized that excelling in school brought his mother joy and relief from her struggles. He committed himself to pursue a higher education to pursue his interests in the sciences and to one day pull him and his mother out of poverty. continued 1250 Bellflower Blvd. l Long Beach, CA 90840 l (562) 985-2006 l http://web.csulb.edu/divisions/students/camp/ CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY LONG BEACH College Assistance Migrant Program Alumni Success Story Jairo Yobani Maldonado-Contreras 1st Year Completion National Performance Target (86%) 2016-2017 95.24% GPRA 1 PERFORMANCE DATA Abstract The California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), serves 40 eligible students from a large pool of youth with migrant and seasonal farm working backgrounds through the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP). In cooperation with the state’s Migrant Education Of- fice, and CAMP partners, CSULB identifies needs criti- cal for students’ success in college. CAMP’s objec- tives focus on enrolling and retaining eligible students. The program addresses the Government Performance and Results Act measures by establishing the follow- ing two objectives: at least 90% of CAMP’s students will complete the first year of their postsecondary pro- gram; at least 90% of CAMP students, who complete their first academic year, will continue their postsec- ondary education. Students are helped to transition to college through orientation programs, career and personal counseling, academic advising, and cultural events. Students who require remediation are offered individual or group tu- toring. Students meet monthly with the Counselor to receive academic advising, career guidance, and im- prove their study skills. CAMP offers workshops in economic and personal finance counseling, health care, time management, career exploration and job search skills. CAMP staff includes four full- time positions: Director, Counselor, Program Coordinator/Recruiter, and Ad- ministrative Assistant. CSULB provides CAMP with private offices for staff, computer labs, libraries, and up-to-date technology classrooms. CAMP works closely with local, state, and federal pro- grams that provide additional resources. Formative and summative evaluations occur immediately after providing services. Students, parents, Migrant Educa- tion and high school personnel, and the campus com- munity provide feedback on services to improve the program. CAMP at CSULB looks forward to continued funding to increase the number of migrant students who successfully complete their first academic year and continue at CSULB through graduation. 2nd Year Enrollment National Performance Target (85%) 2016-2017 100% GPRA 2
  2. 2. Alumni Success Story Jairo Yobani Maldonado-Contreras continued Jairo is the first in his family to attend college and will be the first to attend graduate school. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics. He will gradu- ate in Spring 2019 and aims to attend a Ph.D. program in Fall 2019. His goal is to earn a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering with a focus in biomechanics. His research interests are in the development of advanced bionic limbs for the rehabilitation or augmentation of humans. Since his sophomore year, Jairo has conducted 3 years of research in rehabilitation technologies for lower-limb amputees at CSULB, spent a summer at North- western University developing smartphone technology for the monitoring of stroke patients, and promoted STEM to underrepresented students in the Long Beach community as part of the Society of Hispanic Profes- sional Engineers. He has also served as a peer mentor for CAMP students and as a tutor for the CSULB Col- lege of Engineering; these experiences have reinforced his desire to become a professor of engineering after obtaining his doctorate. Next semester Jairo, will begin his applications for graduate school. He plans on applying to various universi- ties including Northwestern, Stanford, MIT, and Caltech. In preparation for graduate school, Jairo will be par- ticipating in the MIT Summer Research Program (MSRP) this upcoming Summer, where he will spend the summer conducting research at MIT under the guidance of MIT faculty members. He attributes accomplish- ments to help and support of programs like College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), Beach Engineering Student Success Team (BESST), Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD), and Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP). These programs have been his family away from his mother. Achieving his goals would not only repay his mother for her sacrifices but also prove to minority students that success is ob- tainable in the face of adversity. 1250 Bellflower Blvd. l Long Beach, CA 90840 l (562) 985-2006 l http://web.csulb.edu/divisions/students/camp/ CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY LONG BEACH College Assistance Migrant Program
