JOYA Scholars Grad Celebration & Fundraiser
It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since our community last gathered in-person! Join us for a JOYA Scholars homecoming like no other—filled with friends, food, tributes, and good times all around. Let’s give our Class of 2022 grads and their families the celebration of a lifetime!
Meet Our Scholars
JOYA Scholars serves over 100 first-generation junior high, high school, and college students from families residing in the Garnet & Maple neighborhoods of Fullerton, California. We believe each student should have the resources they need to succeed in high school, graduate from college, build a fulfilling career, and become a community leader.
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.
