GYO is at the forefront of promoting education and increasing health awareness in the Bronx and beyond. Through our back-to-school campaign, we provide up-to-date G.E.D kits and college enrollment materials to Bronx youth and young adults. Through our assistance and guidance, many of our beneficiaries are acquiring their G.E.D with plans of furthering their education. Additionally, we provide educational advice and mentoring to Bronx high school students and recent immigrants who wish to pursue college education.
Additionally, we provide academic scholarships to students in The Gambia through a local NGO, Schools for Progress, which helps us identify and distribute funds to students in need. Annually, we provided scholarships to at least four needy students. Under the leadership of our Education Committee Chair Mariama Gassama we are working on extending some tuitions/books assistance programs to deserving students here in USA base on their academics and financial needs.
