who we serve
Each year, with your support, we give as many scholarships as we can. Since 2015, we have issued over 70 scholarships to low-income youth who are entering community colleges. Scholarship recipients are graduates from alternative high schools that serve 16 to 26 year old students that dropped-out or were pushed-out of traditional school systems.
