The Sacramento County Juvenile Justice Commission annually provides scholarships to youth in Sacramento County

posted May 23, 2013, 10:16 AM by Alberto Mercado

The Sacramento County Juvenile Justice Commission (JJC) has set an annual goal of awarding scholarships in increments of $1000 to youth who:

·      Demonstrate a willingness to work towards improving themselves.

·      Document in writing a positive educational plan for their future.

·      Completion of GED or have a received high school diploma during the 2012-2013 school year

·      Have need for some degree of financial assistance. 

Initiated in 2006, the Juvenile Justice Commissioners voted to take advantage of a Sacramento County Superior Court policy that pays Commissioners $25 per meeting for their voluntarily participating in JJC monthly meetings.  It was agreed that all funds paid to the Commissioners would be donated to JJC to support the Education for Success Scholarship Program.  The Juvenile Services Council also has generously donated to this scholarship program.
