ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Voces y Manos Scholarship Program was founded on the conviction that young people have limitless potential to create positive change in their communities. Scholarships from Voces y Manos cover the costs of tuition and school supplies, and are provided to students after their completion of our leadership training program. In addition, Voces y Manos staff holds daily office hours in which students can receive one-on-one tutoring, and use our laptop computers to complete homework assignments. Our students graduate not only with a high school degree, but also with the skills and self-confidence needed to build a better future for their communities.
Be the change
Helping families send their children to school does not require huge sums of money; it requires just one dollar per day. By making a contribution of $360, you can provide one of our students with a full scholarship for one year. Sponsoring a scholarship is a unique opportunity to make a difference that will change a young person’s life forever.
