The YJCW Branch of the NAACP is committed to ensuring that all students receive a great public education that equips them with all the necessary tools to be productive members of society. We endeavor to ensure that these students are prepared to enter college or the workforce in the career of their choice. It is also our goal to make sure that students in our local schools are taught by a diverse staff of teachers, have access to quality resources, and are disciplined in a fair and proportionate manner.
SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEEThe Scholarship Committee oversees the distribution, review and awarding of the Branch scholarships to graduating high school students in the York-James City-Williamsburg community. The Committee also sponsors the “Celebration of Scholars”, held typically the first Saturday in June, to allow community organizations and churches to present their scholarships and awards in an open forum with family and friends.
