Mentorship and education are powerful tools that open doors to a world of possibilities. For over 200 graduating College Bound seniors, this year’s high school graduation ceremony marked a significant milestone in their educational journey.
On Friday, May 12th, proud families, mentors, and supporters gathered to celebrate the Class of 2023 at the Santa Ana Elks Lodge. The evening was particularly remarkable, as many seniors are first-generation college students and 61 seniors would be receiving financial assistance through our College Bound Scholarship program.
College Bound is a college and career readiness program that works to ensure high school students graduate on time with a customized plan for their future. By offering academic advising, educational enrichment, family counseling, and financial assistance, members are prepared to not only graduate high school, but to succeed and flourish in higher education and in their future careers.
Even after graduation, members receive support through our College Bound Alumni program, which is designed to assist with the transition to college by providing mentorship, resources, professional opportunities, and even financial assistance as young adults navigate the next pivotal chapter of their lives.
