Change a life Today

Post-Secondary Scholarship Endowment Fund

Working with the Toronto District School Board, we offer an on-site high school so young moms can graduate from grade 12 with an Ontario high school diploma. Each student receives an individually-tailored program that focuses on academics as well as life skills. The timetable allows for maximum flexibility to help young moms manage the responsibilities of motherhood including attending doctors’ appointments. Individual support is available to maintain motivation and attendance when outside factors can become barriers to success.

 

 

.

100% Success rate

100% of participants in our on-site high school succeed in completing their high school education. The majority of them express interest in continuing on with higher education. Jessie’sscholarship program was launched so that high school graduates could receive some financial support to help pay tuition fees for a post-secondary program in a college or university. 

A Better Future

Scholarship recipients are highly motivated teenage moms who recognize that higher education increases their chances for better employment and more stable housing, enabling them to provide a brighter future for themselves and their children. Last year 12 students enrolled in post-secondary education received a $500 scholarship. For more information, please contact Maritza Sanchez, Executive Director at maritza@jessiescentre.org
