I deeply appreciate the dedicated supporters of City Scholars® Foundation! The capacity building, training and support I receive through the Fellowship for Education makes a huge difference in my ability to lead in the non-profit sector and helps me and others like me make even more of a positive impact for the low-income youth we serve.
