Ways to help


Schedule a time to meet your mentee at a school lunch or field trip (you'll be invited by the school), or outside of school (with parental permission) to engage in many different kinds of activities (ice cream outings, hikes, recitals, discussion about school...other.). Mentors help promote sense of self-worth and confidence in students to help them remain in school and enter college.

How you helpThis is a great opportunity to help shape a future. It means taking an interest in a child who has demonstrated potential and helping that child turn potential into a bright future. Let’s do this together.
About usThe Young Scholars Fund identifies 3rd and 4th graders at inner city schools who show potential for going to college. Then we support them with a scholarship and mentoring to help them get there. The program is modeled on a similar program started by folks we know in West Palm Beach, Florida. That one has been in operation for more than fifteen years. They’ve had enormous success. Virtually every one of the winners is either in college or is still in school and on track for college. Some of the stories showing the effect these scholarships have on the children are truly moving.
