Every $100 makes a huge difference in the life of a student. As the school year begins, the number of students in JOYA Scholars will reach an all-time high. More than 40 middle and high school students will join us this fall. That’s five times the amount of students from just three years ago!
With her own determination and guidance from JOYA Scholars, Valeria became the first person from her neighborhood to graduate from college in over a decade.
Today, Valeria is attending law school and continues to live in the Garnet neighborhood.
Cristian explains how JOYA Scholars has played an instrumental role in helping him realize his dream of going to college.
