Paying For College/ Jump Start Our Student's Future

We invite you to join us for Paying For Post High School Education – The Champions Way.
In these one-hour virtual sessions we will share how the Florida Prepaid Foundation Scholarships our students earn through Champions For Learning are leveraged with the support of mentors, volunteers, and the staff to ensure students have a post high school plan and a way to achieve that plan as close to debt free as possible. This year we also have a unique opportunity to jump start the future of 1000 high school seniors in Collier County by purchasing one-year scholarships to help student begin their chosen path after high school in Florida. Join us to learn more!

Additional dates are forthcoming.
