Young Adult Scholars (YAS)  

Young Adult Scholars (YAS) – Summer Only

It is an ongoing goal of Pomona Hope to provide opportunities for educational, spiritual and community engagement growth for all ages and stages of human development. To increase college readiness, leadership development and the values of personal responsibility, character and role modeling, Pomona Hope offers a scholarship program for enrolled students who are current high school juniors and seniors.   Students who apply, interview, and are invited to enter the scholarship program must agree to follow, to the letter, all of the program’s rules.  They must also engage fully in all aspects of the scholarship program, their volunteer duties and leadership responsibilities. 
These Young Adult Scholars assist our Summer Interns as they build and implement our annual Summer Enrichment Program from the ground up. They meet with a staff mentor once a week, and present what they have learned from the summer to the Pomona Hope board after the Summer program is over.
