For them to be successful, we know it takes more than money. Our scholars program is about accompaniment — connecting with youth and their families, bridging relationships with schools, and building cohorts of students who can be a support to one another.Selection Process:The FirstFruits Scholars Program is open to children of FirstFruits Farms and FirstFruits Community employees. We seek to connect with students early in their high school program so that we can build relationships with them and offer guidance as they chart their course for the future. Our orientation program takes prospective students through a series of workshops covering the following topics: call and purpose; servant leadership; community service; planning and organizing; good decision making. Throughout the scholarship program, we place a high priority on community building — not only are students required to complete community service hours prior to applying for admission into our program, but they commit to community service hours every month during their course of study. The purpose of this community service requirement is less about the activity chosen than it is about the intentional effort made by each student to connect with people outside of their regular school routine. Over the years, we have learned that the most successful students have built up networks of support, both on and off campus. As they engage in the community around them, they build supportive relationships and takes these skills and connections with them wherever they go in the future.To determine your eligibility or to begin the orientation process, please contact:
