Mission Statement

South Central Scholars is a group of volunteers, all educated professionals who work with disadvantaged, highly motivated, inner city high school students to help them be successful in college and graduate school. Through education, mentorship and our jobs program, the students of South Central Scholars develop their full potential and become future leaders, both within SCS and in the broader community.

Description

SCS was founded in 2001 to support one student matriculating at the University of California, Berkeley. The next year, we grew to support 32 students. Today, approximately 1,019 students are either in our program currently or recent college graduates, including 425 graduated scholars and over 120 freshmen students in the high school class of 2013.

To date, SCS has distributed close to $4 million in scholarships!
