Thanks to the amazing support of the community, we have exceeded our goal for this campaign! We were able to continue the Junior Scholars program in high schools, funding stipends as well as projects at the schools to ensure a large-scale impact on the entire student body. Though this campaign is complete, you can still join the team and make a difference by contributing here: http://asufoundation.org/jsp


Who We Are: We are the Spirit of Service Scholars, a group of 15 ASU students dedicated to becoming leaders in public service.  We are a diverse group studying a variety of disciplines.  Through partnerships with Phoenix-area public high schools, we serve our community by mentoring Junior Scholars, the next generation of public service leaders.

The Goal: We need your help so we can continue to encourage high school students to gain confidence, perseverance, and skills to pursue higher education. $5000 would allow us to continue the Junior Scholars program at a school, funding stipends as well as projects at the schools to ensure a large-scale impact on the entire student body.  

The Project:
Working in small groups, we meet bi-weekly at each high school to mentor a select group of five juniors and seniors who have demonstrated leadership and a commitment to attaining a college education.  

Each Junior Scholar team designs a school-wide project to promote college readiness.  Junior Scholars survey their peers to identify needs and opportunities, and with the guidance of us (their mentors) and school administrators, implement a program that promotes a college-going culture at their school. To reward their efforts, Junior Scholars receive stipends to alleviate some of the costs of the college preparation and application process. We become lasting allies and advocates for the Junior Scholars with whom we mentor, and the Junior Scholars develop confidence and clarity as to how to make their college dreams a reality.
 

Past Junior Scholar Projects:
      
In 2011, Betty Fairfax High School students demystified the college application process by creating helpful college application packets complete with timelines, internet resources, and recommendations from ASU’s admissions team.    

In 2013, Hamilton High School students simplified access to existing school resources by streamlining opportunities and updates on student-friendly websites and social media sites.
 

In 2013, ASU Preparatory Academy Phoenix students elevated their school’s underutilized “College Café” by infusing a peer education model to inform and energize their peers about college opportunities, procedures, and deadlines. 
 

Your partnership will help the Junior Scholars get ready for college!
