From Sally and Vandana...
Updated: Jan 15, 2019
2018 has been a momentous year for us at Green Halo! We aquired our 501(c)(3) status and officially founded Green Halo Scholars. We worked with over 20 high schoolers from Hindsale South and Proviso West. Together we successfully took our scholars to On-Site in October, worked through completing college applications, applying for scholarships and financial aid, and mentoring our scholars through the transition from senior year in high school to becoming college freshmen in 2019. We are so proud of our scholars' successes as well as our privilege to partake in their achievements.
In 2018, we were able to further solidify our mission to serve academically motivated students. We recognized the need of low income and first generation high schoolers in our own area who lacked the support and resources to navigate through this process and provided mentoring, counseling, tutoring, financial aid planning, as well as support with the extra costs that come with the college application process.
We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge that we could not have achieved all that we have this year without your support and encouragement, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We do ask that you take a moment of your time to learn more about our mission as we grow and to spread the word for the future of our incredible scholars.
With hope and gratitude,
Sally & Vandana
