Community Partner Spotlight: Promises2Kids Guardian Scholars

JIT_Image

JLSD is proud to partner with Promises2Kids’ Guardian Scholars.  The program encourages foster youth to pursue higher education through community college, trade school or a university degree. This highly successful resource provides former foster youth with a partial financial scholarship along with mentoring support to assist them in adapting to and excelling in a higher education setting.

Each October, the JLSD Community Council hosts their annual All Community Council Meeting at the Promises2Kids Headquarters, meeting former and current Guardian Scholars. JLSD supports other Promises2Kids projects such as Camp Connect and Back2School Shopping.
