Santa Cruz Countywide Black Student Union
The Santa Cruz County Office of Education is proud to announce the first ever Countywide Black Student Union. If you are interested in being a part of the SCCBSU please fill out this application to join our weekly meetings. We will send you the zoom link when you fill out the form. Meetings are every Tuesday, where we come together on discord to play games, talk about school, think about future plans and learn about one another! If you have any questions on how to join the SCCBSU you can contact Celeste Gutierrez at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Countywide Black Student Union is a safe space for, but not limited to, students who identify as Black/African/African American/Biracial & so on. We foster a healthy environment where students connect, reflect, inform, and heal through group conversations or 1-on-1s. Although there are facilitated topics/themes/conversations, our student members typically begin to feel comfortable bringing up what they feel is necessary. From conversations about hair products to generational PTSD, we ensure our student's voices are heard by their peers and their community. To ensure inclusivity, we offer safe spaces for a middle school group, a high school group, and for adults/educators.
We're here to

Cypress High School, 12th Grade
Hi, I'm Quentin, your friendly neighborhood BSU President. I like to chill out and listen to some nice bossa nova music, and my favorite food at the moment is some really good orange chicken. I also enjoy reading and I'm trying to pick up gardening too. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask, and my DM's are open as well
Mission Hill, 6th Grade
Hi I'm Fernanda. I like to dance and listen to 90's music. I also enjoy reading. My favorite author is Elizabeth Acevedo. I might be in a leadership role when more people join!
