Youth Program

More Than Just A Scholarship

Since our inception, the Miguel Contreras Foundation provided graduating high school students with scholarship support. We award scholarships to alumni of our youth programs and graduating seniors from low-income, immigrant communities throughout Los Angeles County.

Besides supporting our students financially, we mentor these students year-round to ensure their success in higher education or apprenticeship programs.
