Phase Three: Scholarship Phase
Phase three provides all participants with scholarships to attain a higher education, along with financial management and planning trainings. The participants are aged 16-17 and have completed the previous two phases. Phase three seeks to ultimately prepare participants for financial independence and finding a job. Those participants entering college or university must apply to receive funds and will be sponsored by Nor Luyce after signing a contract outlining what is expected of them.
Goal 1: During Phase 3, participants will gain a better understanding of financial planning, and computers.
Objective 1.1: All participants will attend 10 scholarship-phase group meetings held by Nor Luyce dealing with topics such as budgeting, debit cards, savings, etc. by the end of Phase 3.
Objective 1.2: All participants will complete a one-year budget report, using a realistic salary (commensurate with desired job).
Objective 1.3: All participants will take part in at least 9 computer classes held at Nor Luyce by the computer instructor and monitored by participation monitoring forms completed by Nor Luyce’s M&E staff member.
Goal 2: During Phase 3, participants will gain practical experience through volunteerism or internships to increase their career opportunities.
