We strive to make a commitment to the participants in our Youth Empowerment Program to support their journey all the way through college. You can help us ensure their success through a donation to our three college scholarship programs: The Camp Nurses Fund, The DREAMers Among US Fund, and The Pedro Cruz Fund. Click here to download general requirements for all three funds.
We also welcome your support of helping send a child to our Summer Overnight Leadership Camp through the Amity-Faircloth Fund. A week at camp costs $900, but we are happy to accept partial scholarships.
Congratulations, Scholarship 2017 Winners!

The Pedro Cruz Fund helps graduates of the Youth Empowerment Program with their college related costs.
