Past Programs Sponsored by the Wilmer Amina Carter Foundation:
30 Under 30
Wilmer Amina Carter initiated the 30 Under 30 program during her tenure as Assembly member, 62nd District. The 30 Under 30 Awards recognized Latino and Native American young adults, ages 20 to 35, who were making a difference in the greater Inland Empire and beyond. The program was a partnership between the Wilmer Amina Carter Foundation, the office of Dr. Albert Karnig, then President of Cal State San Bernardino, and a committee of Latino community leaders.
The LegiSchool Project in Sacramento, California provides opportunities for students to engage in public policy and the legislative process. The Wilmer Amina Carter Foundation provided financial support to San Bernardino students who participated in in a field trip to the State Capitol. These students testified in support of legislation that increased student access. The LegiSchool Project is a collaboration between Cal State University Sacramento and the California State Legislature and is governed by the Center for California Studies.
