A high school diploma is a valuable asset when looking to secure meaningful employment. For many youth who drop out, something as simple as a small fee for a textbook can become a huge financial barrier to returning.
This gift pays the registration and book fees for one youth trying to return to school, helping them get back and be set up for future success.
