Support Young Women
Support Our Scholars is a nonprofit organization that supports underprivileged young women from the Orlando, Florida area with extraordinary potential. Our organization selects young woman at the top of their high school graduating class and mentors them throughout their four years of college and beyond.
How We Help Girls Graduate
In order to prepare our scholars for college, we partner each scholar with a mentor for her four-year journey. Each mentor helps her scholar by mapping out a four-year plan, providing advice about courses and majors and serving as a confidante as difficulties arise. Additionally, we provide our students with a $10,000 stipend throughout their four years of college, pending a 2.5 GPA and contact with their mentor. We also provide our scholars with everything they need to begin their freshman year of college. We make sure our scholars a laptop, bedding, winter clothing if they are going to school up north, and anything else they may need for their transition into college. It is very important to us that our girls go to college with dignity and do not feel inferior to their peers.
I want to thank you again for all that you do for me and the other girls. I know that this is a special program and I want to let you know that I couldn’t be happier with my experience with such a great group of people. I am so lucky to have met so many strong and positive women! I am graduating now and only hope that the positive spirits you bestowed on us, follows me.
