Hope and a Home also provides scholarships for college students through our Mike Young Education Fund (MYEF), as a key part of our college prep program.
The program offers an SAT/ACT workshop for its participants and exposes students to various colleges through college tours. Due to the pandemic, this now includes a virtual ACT/SAT Prep Course (Fall/Spring) for our students preparing for college.
Students are also counseled as they apply to college and settle on a school. Recently we have connected our High School Students with virtual college tours.
We award scholarships through our Mike Young Education Fund to continue supporting students in our program throughout their academic journey.
In addition to providing scholarships, staff also assist students to apply for Pell grants, DC TAG, DC-CAP, and other sources of educational support funding. We are proud that MYEF has helped students from Hope and a Home start college year after year.
