You made it to your senior year! That’s amazing, and mentoring becomes even more valuable when our students reach this milestone.
At Save Our Youth we help our seniors during their senior year. We help them to finish strong and prepare for setting up their next steps.
Young Adult Transition
Our mentors and education department support our students in this big life transition by:
- Persevering through Senioritis
- Discovering pathwaze – a tool to determine a student’s strengths which help decide which direction is the right way to go
- Career readiness and connections to other resources to help learn about careers that pay living wages
- College & Trade School options, we help prepare with applications, FAFSA, and all the next steps to transition into post-secondary school options
Scholars is our program for mentees as they pursue post-secondary options. Many of our mentees are first-generation students and are at a higher risk of leaving post-secondary education without receiving a degree.
Our education department provides year-round support and resources to help students navigate emotional and academic challenges.
Thanks to our generous supporters, Save Our Youth also provides financial scholarships for tuition and books (up to $2500/semester) to help bridge some of the financial gaps our mentees face.
Our Scholars program goal is to provide the needed support and resources for them to complete a post-secondary program.
We have been so blessed to see many of our scholars achieve their goal to graduate from college!
In 2023 we celebrated the following graduates:
High School (14)
Certificate Program (1)
Bachelors Degree (6)
