Excerpt from JCYC Up Close Summer 2018 This past June, JCYC is proud to have awarded $30,000 worth of scholarships to middle school and high school students throughout San Francisco in the form of 529 saving plans and college scholarships! Thanks to the generous support from our 2017 SF Aloha Run Corporate Sponsors and individual donors, we were able to increase the total amount awarded from $25,000 in 2017 to $30,000 this year. This also allowed us to double the number of scholarships awarded from 14 to 28. Scholarships  were awarded to JCYC’s outstanding program participants based on their academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need. JCYC’s decision to establish this scholarship program was motivated by the unfortunate reality that the cost of attending college continues to be a major barrier for students, particularly those from low-income families who are hoping to be the first from their family to attend college. Since 2000, the cost to attend a University of California or California State University campus has doubled with major increases planned in the future. Nationally, less than half of all high school students enroll and complete college. This has significantly widened the gap between the earning power of a college graduate and those who have only completed high school. Today, a college graduate on average can expect to earn close to $1 million more over their lifetime than a high school graduate! The JCYC Scholarship Program serves an important role in helping our youth pave their future path to college. JCYC hopes to continue expanding this scholarship program through funds raised from the 8th Annual SF Aloha Run on September 23, 2018. In addition to funding the scholarship program, funds raised from our 2018 SF Aloha Run will also support JCYC’s children and youth development programs.
