Are you joining us on May 21? Here's everything you need to know!

  • Venue: Please arrive as early as possible. The event is outdoors, however everyone will be seated under a large canopy, so it will be shaded.
  • Attire: Best described as "clean-cut casual"—this event is much more of an informal community gathering compared to our previous formal galas.
  • Guests of sponsors: If you are a sponsor and are inviting guests, your guests will simply need to share your name at the check-in table and we will direct them to your table(s).
  • Menu: Enjoy all-you-can-eat carne asada, chicken, pork, and vegetarian/vegan tacos with rice & beans and aguasfrescas (jamaica & horchata). Afterward, cool down with Mexican popsicles from Lola's Paletas Mexicanas!
  • Due to our 2 program times, we kindly ask our guests to be aware of incoming/outgoing guests throughout the afternoon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

JOYA Scholars' College Readiness Program prepares first-gen students for college success.

We believe every student in the Garnet and Maple neighborhoods of Fullerton will have the resources they need to succeed in high school, graduate from college, build a path to a fulfilling career, and become a community leader.

Your donation helps to ensure 100 students receive a fellowship to participate in our 2022-2023 program year!

On average, the value of services for each JOYA Scholars student is $2,000 per year. This number includes access to up to 70 free individualized sessions of Tutoring, Mentoring, College Apps Academy, Parent Academy, and additional services, as well as a graduation scholarship. Our goal in 2022 is to raise $200,000—ensuring a $2,000 fellowship for each student. Our Grad Celebration fundraiser goes a LONG way toward meeting our 2022 goal.
