Our First Sponsors: GEICO, OP3, and Nakiya

Where have we been for the past few months?  You haven't seen a blog post since May because we've been extremelybusy recruiting Scholars and Sponsors!  Today I introduced one of our first GH Scholars, Vivian, to the world.  Vivian wants to be a doctor, and we're so excited to be a part of her journey.  Now I want to tell you about three GH Sponsors - one company, one local agency, and one individual - who are making dreams a reality for our Scholars.

GEICO- The auto insurance company is providing the funding for one of our Scholars who will attend a community college in the DMV.  We're so excited to have this major powerhouse involved in our program.  We're even in discussions about possible GEICO Information Technology (IT) internships for Scholars who are interested in the computer science and IT fields.  We're going to match the Scholar with a caring individual from the community who will serve as their mentor.

Fairfax County Office of Public Private Partnerships- OP3, as they like to be called, will sponsor a Fairfax County student who will attend Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) this Fall.  Again, we'll take OP3's vital funding and pair it with a mentor from the community to create the total support for this student.

Nakiya - Nakiya is a doctor and a recent Master of Public Health grad living in Maryland who is passionate about helping people and the importance of education.  She will be sponsoring a student who has similar interests and passions.  We're very excited about Nakiya's participation in our program!

I wanted you to "meet" the awesome Sponsors who are already a part of our program.  Over the next few weeks we'll be matching them with our Scholars and creating these very special relationships. 

We need seven more Sponsors.  Will you, your business, or your organization join these three outstanding Sponsors in investing in the future of a teen parent?   For more info, please click here.

If I can answer any questions for you, please email me at  I'd love to have your involvement.
