Western Washington University's Youth Programs is dedicated to providing quality educational experiences to students K-12, while getting to experience the collegiate environment and hands-on engaging experiments. This year, our goal is to reach more students in the community through increased scholarship opportunities for those with financial need.

Why are we fundraising?
Every year, Youth Programs hosts more than 2,000 students. We receive more scholarship requests than our donations can fund and we have been unable to provide financial support to students that are very interested in attending our programs, but cannot afford the registration. With your help, we hope to raise enough to scholarship at least one student into each of the following programs:
- Odyssey of Science and Arts: $189/week
- Early Release Enrichment: $30/day, $175/quarter
- Girls in Engineering, Math & Science (GEMS) Academy: $39
- GEMS Night Out: $30
- Global Connections: $180/week
- Grandparent's U: $239
- Kids Night Out @ Western: $30
- Ocean STEM After School Program: $99
- Kids Camp: $220/week
How you can help
Our goal is to raise $4170 by December 31st, 2016. Gifts of any size will help to scholarship students into academic and summer programs throughout the year, but if we reach this goal, we can offer scholarships to every program! Every $5 donation matters! You can also help by sharing this information with others.
If we exceed our goal, we will be happy to expand our scholarship program to additional students in financial need.
