We are very proud of our 34 young adults from Compton, Pacoima and South LA who received college scholarships for the 2019-2020 year. Two of these college scholarship recipients graduated with bachelor’s degrees, and one of our young adults is in his second year Ph.D. program at UC Santa Cruz.
Many of these youth grew up in environments with no academic role models. Some are teen parents with extra responsibilities. Despite very challenging life circumstances they have maintained excellent grades and have never lost sight of their goal to become a college graduate.
El Nido Family Centers’ Alumni Association and our College Corner have guided the youth during high school and the transition to college. The Alumni will continue to be there for them during their college years.
Since the program began in 1992, El Nido has awarded 491 scholarships.
