This June, 2018, thirteen of our Early College Academy (ECA) students graduated with their diplomas. Their achievement is a culmination of their dedication and hard work, and a reflection of the support they have received from their community and the NAYA family.
With your help, our students will be able to take that next important step and go to college. And thanks to the generous support from our partners at Portland Community College (PCC), the first $5,000 received will be matched 100%! Please donate today to the NAYA ECA Scholarship Fund and double your impact for our youth’s future!
“Because of the support from my NAYA family I will be continuing my education at Mt. Hood Community College where I will focus my studies on Wilderness Leadership and Experiential Education. My dream is to start an outdoor program for at-risk and/or underrepresented youth that will teach kids the importance of environmental stewardship, accountability, leadership, community and most importantly, self-empowerment.” – DeVonntae Amundson, Pomo, Dry Creek Rancheria Band
Please help our ECA graduates like DeVonntae continue on to college by making your donation today. Your gift of $100, $500, $1,000 or more will be doubled thanks to a match from PCC. Together, we are making the difference that sends our students to college, and helps them to realize their dreams through higher education.
If not for the Early College Academy, many of our students would have never considered the possibility of going to college. With your support, we are showing them that anything is possible. Please help us sustain that momentum, and make your gift today!
