This September 13th, Building Skills Partnership in collaboration with SEIU United Service Workers West will host the annual Mike Garcia Scholarship Gala, a fundraiser to support the college dreams of first-generation students and children of property service workers.

Since 2008, the Mike Garcia Scholarship has removed financial barriers for hundreds of students by awarding over $200,000 in scholarships. Join us for a night of food, music, and networking as we continue to invest in their futures while honoring the life and legacy of previous President and leader of SEIU-USWW, Mike Garcia.

The Mike Garcia Scholarship Fund was established to honor Mike Garcia, who demonstrated extraordinary integrity and dedication to working families across California. Mike shared his vision for the American dream not only through his vital contributions to the fight for workers’ rights, but by elevating higher education opportunities for their children.
