In the spring of 2021, Safe Children Coalition Achievers program participants were awarded college scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500.

The Bank of America Client Foundation has awarded Safe Children Coalition (SCC) a grant of $20,000. The funds will directly support SCC's Achievers program and eight-10 Achievers with scholarships as they continue their education. To receive a scholarship, youth are required to actively participate in the Achievers program at monthly career and college readiness workshops, Achievers school meetings, financial aid and financial literacy workshops, and various community service events throughout the year. Approximately 185 students are expected to participate in the Achievers program in fiscal year 2022, which empowers at-risk, minority and other disadvantaged students to set and achieve goals in both their educational and personal lives, encouraging continuous growth in the areas of personal development, college preparation, community service and leadership, cultural enrichment, and career options. The program is open to all middle and high school students in Sarasota County. Since 2000, the Achievers program has served more than 9,200 students.
