Supporting Mi Casa Es Tu Casa Efforts
Our organization is dedicated to supporting current high school students who lack the resources, but hold the potential to pursue a higher education.
By preparing them with the necessary tools and knowledge, students will be able to make the best informed decisions for their future, whether that is attending a university, community college, or trade/vocational school.
Now more than ever with the closing of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of guidance counselors, we are asking for funds to assist with the following ongoing projects:
- Web Development Efforts for Online Resource Hub
- Development of Webinars for Current Seniors
- Bilingual YouTube Channel
- Scholarships for Underrepresented High School Seniors
Our most recent crowdfunding effort allowed us to raise $1,600 towards scholarships for high school graduates (Class of 2020) that identified as either: first-generation, from a single parent household, or undocumented. Whether it was $5 donated of $50, every amount was special because it often came from current low-income/first-generation college students wanting to support this next generation.
