BENEFITING: YOUNG MENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF HONOLULU
Y College Camp is a program designed to provide students from undeserved populations with knowledge of and access to resources in preparation for post-secondary education.
Y scholarships will be awarded to sophomores from Title I schools who are able to demonstrate a desire and a commitment to pursue post-secondary education after high school. Scholarship recipients will get the opportunity to spend one week at the Atherton YMCA student residence on University Avenue in Honolulu. Students will also participate in a program of workshops, service projects, team-building activities, and campus visits to the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Chaminade University, Hawaii Pacific University, and Kapiolani Community College.
Scholarships will cover the cost of transportation to and from Oahu, i.e., roundtrip airfare for Neighbor Island participants, a weekend Odyssey Course at YMCA Camp Erdman on the North Shore, room and board for the remainder of the week at the Atherton YMCA, and ground transportation and admission to all college-related and service events.
