Our Vision for Our Scholars
JOYA Scholars serves students from families residing in the Garnet & Maple neighborhoods of Fullerton, California. Our mission: to inspire and prepare them for success in higher education. Our vision: each student will have the resources she needs to succeed in high school, graduate from college, build a fulfilling career, and become a community leader.
Meet Our Scholars
This year, students participated in 2,100 hours of virtual programming—including Mentoring, Tutoring, College Apps Academy, Parent Academy, Service & Leadership Academy, & more—an increase compared to any single pre-pandemic year.
A Message From Our Board Chair
Our students look to us to advocate on their behalf, as many of us once did ourselves. We are a community that walks alongside our students every step of the way.
Our Strength Is In Our Relationships
Our approach is to bring in the right people to have the right conversations with our students at the right time. In doing so, our team of volunteer mentors and tutors ensure their dreams become reality.
