Will Jóvenes Adelante Have to Disappoint 5.5 Deserving Students and Families?
By Robin Loving
Each year, Jovenes Adelante offers A-level students who could otherwise not afford to attend university the opportunity to do so, a life-changing opportunity to break the cycle of poverty that their families have been trapped in for generations.
This year, we have received more than 80 applications for these scholarships. Our trained volunteers are scouring those now to see how many will qualify for interviews. Typically, half will. Of those 40, typically another half will pass our rigorous selection process and be eligible for 2016 university scholarships. Imagine what that means: 20 families will have the opportunity to break out of poverty!
But, at present, we have sponsorships for only 14.5 potential students. That leaves 5.5 potential students without the means to achieve their dreams this summer—5.5 families that might have to continue to endure the harshness of subsistence existences that typically lack such comforts such as heat, electricity, windowpanes, and paved roads.
It costs as little as a cup of coffee a day at a coffee shop to sponsor a Jovenes Adelante student through university! For under US$4/day you could be the proud sponsor of an outstanding, and outstandingly grateful, local student.
Are you craving a connection to a brighter future? Be the wind beneath the wings of a deserving local student! Sponsor a Jóvenes Adelante student to achieve his or her destiny.
Jóvenes Adelante sponsorships are tax deductible in the US and Canada. They bring with them the pride that an entire family could climb out of poverty once and for all. Contact us today to pledge a whole, half, or quarter sponsorship for an outstanding local student for whom you could make all the difference in the world.
