Your scholarship support can make dreams come true. There are two great scholarship programs supporting cadets who have demonstrated outstanding leadership. The Leandro Jasso Scholarship for Leaders is a memorial scholarship in honor of SGT Leandro Jasso. You can learn about him here [Click Here]. The second scholarship is in honor of Maj Gen Timothy and Mary Lowenberg to the outstanding cadet of the cycle. To donate to either of these important scholarships go to https://www.wyafoundation.org/donate.html, enter your donation amount and on the next page click the box “Add a Tribute Donation” and enter the Leandro Jasso or Lowenberg scholarship.

The purpose of the Washington Youth Academy Foundation is to help Washington State at-risk youth succeed in academics and life!
The Washington Youth Academy Foundation was established to support the students and programs of the Washington Youth Academy. The Washington Youth Academy is part of the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program and is a state-run residential and post-residential program for youth between sixteen and eighteen who have dropped out of high school or at risk of dropping out and offers free tuition to those who qualify. They provide scholarships and assistance for graduated cadets for school and other post graduation endeavors. They also provide ongoing assistance to the Washington Youth Academy.
This Thanksgiving, take a moment to thank the program that is constantly giving to our future: The Washington Youth Academy Foundation. #GivingTuesday
Friends and family of the Washington Youth Academy, you can help the WYA Foundation raise needed funds to support the academic programs at the Academy, help build a library and fund scholarships for our WYA graduates.

Friends and family. It is that time of year when my Washington Youth Academy Foundation is raising funds on the one day of giving on April 23rd. If you are unable to give on that day, you can give early at #KitsapGreatGiveh ttps://kitsapgreatgive.org/
The Kitsap Great Give is the Washington Youth Academy Foundation annual one day fundraiser. We need your support in raising funds to help with Academy programs and especially WYA Cadet Graduate financial assistance for scholarships and more. Here is how you can help. You can start giving on April 9th through April 23rd. I will make a blog post with the link to our donation page.
The value of this event is the Foundation receives a 15% increase from the Kitsap Great Give Bonus Pool.
You can also help by asking your employer or local companies to match a portion of what we raise. For example, if your employer matches $1,000, then we reach $1,000 in donations the company matches it.
Ask your friends and family to join us in this important fundraiser. The Cadets are counting on us.
The financial assistance forms for scholarships and other assistance have been updated. There are new applications for employment and job training related expenses.

A new scholarship has been established to honor a former WYA Cadet. Leandro Jasso was in class 2011-2. After graduating from high school he joined the Army and became a Ranger. He tragically lost his life in Afghanistan. His Mother has established the Leandro Jasso Scholarship for Leaders to honor her son. The Foundation is proud to play a small part in honoring Leandro. This scholarship is available for Cadet's currently in the program and can be awarded for future continuing education or if out of the program and enrolled in continuing education it can apply now. The policy and forms are on our Financial Support page [click here].
If you join iGive and you get the iGive button for 90 days, the Foundation receives $3.00 just like that. If you do make on-line purchases use the iGive button to shop from over 2,000 on-line retailers. They don't charge more, but the companies make charitable donations up to 26% of your purchase and it comes direct to the Foundation.
Here is what iGive says: "We're giving $3 to Washington Youth Academy Foundation for every new iGive member you refer for them. No purchase required. It doesn't get any simpler. It's another way iGive is 300% (or more!) better than Amazon Smile.
Once they try the iGive Button for PCs and Macs for 90 days, we'll automatically credit Washington Youth Academy Foundation with $3. We know that helping is so simple and automatic with the Button, we expect they'll shop and help even more.
Feels good, does good, and it's so easy. Travel, office supplies, and clothing, too. Each purchase at Walmart, Jet.com, QVC, Staples, and so many more stores. Washington Youth Academy Foundation gets an average of 3.00% with every purchase. Amazon Smile is just 0.5%."
To join iGive just follow this link: [click here]. Thanks for helping the Washington Youth Academy Foundation.
The Kitsap Great Give is coming April 23. This is a fantastic way to donate to the Washington Youth Academy Foundation. We get a match percent from the sponsors of the Great Give. Please let your friends and family know. We will post more information as we get closer.
We could use your help now finding company or corporate donors to match what we raise. They can match up to any amount from $100 to $5,000. Every penny we raise goes directly to support the Youth Academy programs and provide financial assistance to cadet graduates for continuing education to job training and more. We can't do it without your support.
