our scholarship program
Scholarship recipients are invited to apply during the Spring of each school year. Selections are made during early June and announced mid-June. Scholars receive awards of $500 or $1000 that can be used on living expenses or tuition. Scholars also receive coaching and year round mentorship to help them succeed in college.

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 the YouthBuild Charter School of CA, which serves 16 to 24 year old students that were pushed-out of traditional school systems.
