"Because I Matter"

Scholarship

We are no longer accepting applications at this time.


Lighthouse Charities holds an annual graduation ceremony for qualified High School Seniors on track to graduating. This is done through their partnership with the CCSD ELL Division, other local organizations.

Faces of success

Our primary goal with this event is to highlight the amazing and gratifiable achievements of all high school refugee students on track to graduating with their class. These students work so hard all year round to make up for lost credits as many students came from not enough, to very little, and to even no schooling.
