The Umoja Community, formerly known at Chabot College as The Daraja Program, is a statewide program that has helped thousands of educationally disadvantaged students graduate and/or transfer to four-year colleges and universities. This program addresses students’ needs through academic support services and curriculum focused on African American history, literature, and culture.

We are also open to undocumented students.
