In 2017, Youth Opportunities launched a Scholarship Program aimed at helping past graduates reach their full potential, through assistance towards study goals and future career plans.
Graduates of the Personal Leadership Program who face financial or social difficulties and can demonstrate continued effort and progress toward achieving their goals can apply for a scholarship of up to $1,000. Scholarships are awarded in three categories; financial aid, employment traineeships and academic tutoring.
In 2017, 27 scholarships were awarded. In 2018 we are aiming to award 75 scholarships.
Youth Opportunities would like to thank the following donors for their generosity and support of the Scholarship Program:
If you are a Youth Opportunities student or have graduated from the Personal Leadership Program in the last two years, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
