F.A.M. Participant Wins REACH Scholarship
Park Place Outreach is proud to share that one of our F.A.M. kids won the REACH Georgia Scholarship for Mercer Middle School! The scholarship awards $10,000 in funding to attend a postsecondary institution in the state of Georgia after graduating high school. The scholarship is awarded to one eighth-grader from each middle school in Chatham County, as well as other schools across the state, who demonstrates true academic promise.
Our Park Place youth has been a participant in the F.A.M. program at Park Place since September 2021, where Park Place staff have provided academic support and worked with him on life skills. Through the REACH Georgia Scholarship, he will have the support of a volunteer mentor and an academic coach for the entirety of high school. A past F.A.M. participant who now works as a peer mentor for the F.A.M. program is also a REACH Scholar!
