College Bound

Help ServiceFirst change the lives of teens and families in Orang County by sharing your loose change. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by June 1st in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Ana, College Bound Program. Your spare change can help a teen be the first in their family to go to college.

College Bound is a year-round program that exposes teens to the idea of college attainability, by providing individual case management, daily academic support, sponsorship of numerous college pathway activities, and preparing members for success in college and beyond. In a community with the highest high school drop-out rate in the country, this program aims to keep teens on track for graduation, and encourages them to set their sighs high for college and beyond. Help make a teens college dream a reality by supporting our College Bound Scholarship Program.

  • In our pilot year we finished the school year with 47 teens in the program, of which 9 were seniors. All 9 graduated on time and 8 of them moved on to pursue higher education. We secured, $147,000 in scholarships  and financial aid for these students.
  • Currently we have expanded the program and have 106 teens enrolled, of which 21 are seniors. Our goal for this year is to award over $250,000 in scholarships.
