JOYA works to break the cycle of proverty through education. The Garnet Neighborhood in the City of Fullerton, CA is made oup of five small blocks where over 1,200 low-income children from working class immigrant families reside. There had been no college graduate to emerge from this Garnet Neigborhood in over a decade.
JOYA provides one-on-one mentors, academic tutoring, educational workshops, parent academy and SAT Prep to give these students the tools they need to go to college.
Altrusa of Anaheim partners with JOYA to sponsor their parent academy, provide SAT Prep Materia, Graphic Calculators, tutoring, panel of experts and others needs. One of our members serves on their advisory board.
Our work with JOYA received a grant from our International Organization in 2014
