Whether our members pursue a traditional college education, trade school, or apprenticeships, we provide opportunities to complete further training and work toward building their own Great Futures. Our goal is to have every teen member graduate high school on time with a plan for their future. This starts with their involvement in the Club’s academic success programs and continues with scholarships that allow them to achieve their educational and career ambitions.
The reality is that with the continued growth in the cost for an education coupled with state funding cuts, more students are left with a widening funding gap. To fill the gap, students most often take on jobs and loans. Often, students are forced to drop out of college due to the difficulty of balancing work and studies.
Because of amazing scholarship donors, we are able to extend scholarships to dozens of Club members and alumni for educational opportunities, including tuition for colleges and universities, participation in medical training and licensing programs, trade programs and more! Check out a list of the 2018 Scholarship Recipients.
You can help our members work toward their goals by providing scholarship support. Support can be through a one-time gift, multi-year pledge or through the establishment of an endowed scholarship fund in your name or in the name of someone you would like to honor.
You will be invited to the Annual Scholarship Dinner which brings together donors, alumni, and members moving onto secondary education and training to celebrate their achievements and award them support toward future success.
Please contact the Chief Development Officer by phone at (603) 883-0523 x211 or by email to discuss ways you can support our youth!
