A Second Chance Community College Scholarship program

Community College Donations – A Second Chance – At Risk Youth

The coronavirus pandemic has hit the country hard, especially amongst America’s working class.  Working-class people lost jobs by the millions and those without college degrees faced the highest rates of unemployment. Over a year into the pandemic, community colleges – the education system created to help America’s working-class – continue to struggle.

A Second Chance with Community College

A Second Chance – Community College Scholarships

According to data from the National Student Clearinghouse, enrollment has declined by nearly 10% at over 1,000 two-year colleges since last spring, more than double the decline in enrollment seen at four-year colleges and universities. Enrollment has declined even more sharply among Black and Hispanic students.

Impactful Donation To Give Back

The bulk of students suspending their higher education are Black and Latino students, many who are at-risk.. Students who are struggling economically have to focus on basic needs rather than looking for higher education. The need is greater than ever for financial aid and live-able wage jobs for students in these communities so they don’t have to choose between education and basic necessities like housing and food.

Donation for Brighter Future


Our goal is to grow our resources to offer the program to at-risk community college students throughout Los Angeles County and beyond. We rely on the generosity of our donors, sponsors, and business partners to raise funds. Every dollar raised will go directly to support program costs including scholarships, computers, study courses, materials, books, licenses, certificates, and more. Your gift of any amount will be a huge part of providing this opportunity for the youth/young adults to access a better life for themselves, their future families and their communities.

Your donations make a difference!
