Serving Students in the Livermore Community for 60 years

by providing interest free loans!


Our Goal Is Your Goal

If you are headed to college, or training for a service profession (eg, mechanic, beautician, fireman), or just need some specialty training or certification to push your career forward, SELF can help. Founded in 1963 in Livermore, we are a non-profit volunteer community organization that offers interest-free loans for current Livermore residents and graduates of Livermore’s high schools of any age.



Our goal is to help members of our community to succeed in their education and career. We do not make any money from these loans, which are supported by donations and loan repayments, and administered by a volunteer committee. We do not ask that you be the top student or that you do not have other resources. We only ask that you are committed to your own success and pursuing a useful course of studies. We will be glad to help you.
