The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club has selected two San Diego organizations to be major beneficiaries of its Turf Bocce Tournament on March 23: Just In Time for Foster Youth and Reality Changers. Both organizations make major differences for the better in the lives of San Diego youths in need of help to reach their potential.
Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) serves youths after they age out of the foster care system by law at age 18. Without continuing family support, these young adults are at risk of becoming homeless, unemployed and under-educated, or in prison. JIT mobilizes resources to identify and fill gaps that prevent motivated youths from reaching their goals of self-sufficient adulthood. JIT also fills the most important gap of all: connections to caring adults who become a lifelong support system for these young adults.
Reality Changers provides high school students with a positive peer culture and the opportunity to become the first in their families to attend college. Reality Changers will serve over 500 students in the 2013-14 school year, a 150 percent increase over just two years ago. Its 1,000 past and current students have earned over $40,000,000 in college scholarships from all sources.
