June 13th of 2017, The Youth for Youth Foundation awarded the first Reaching Out Scholarship award of $500.00 to a student at the Salute to Black Scholars Recognition Dinner. A year later the organization awarded the Reaching Out scholarship to two more students, Charles Nwugwo and JaVanse Ryland-Buntley. While this is the second year of the Reaching Out Scholarship, The Youth for Youth Foundation looks forward to fulfilling their mission to provide resources to the community. Offering opportunities to those furthering their education, while creating a trend of positivity and success leading to the motivational, signature movement known as #Y4Y . Congratulations again to Charles and JaVanse!
What a night!!! It was truly an honor, privilege and pleasure to be the keynote speaker for the Urban League of Rochester, NY’s “Salute to Black Scholars” Recognition Dinner!! Not tooooo long ago lol I was a Black Scholar sitting in those seats praying for my name to be called to receive scholarships to help fund my college education. Now fast forward after a decade+ years, undergrad degree, master’s degree, PMP certification and launched a business I got to sit at the head table alongside business owners, attorneys, and organization leaders to speak encouragement to young people who are sitting where I once sat. To God be ALL the glory 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
