You Can Change a Life...Today
2010 scholarship students in need of sponsorsOlga, Norma, and Juan Carlos need your help! Many of CoEd's scholarship students are still waiting to be sponsored for THIS school year
Through our
Scholarship Program, you can provide a middle or high school scholarship for a student whose family cannot otherwise afford to send him or her to school. In return, students "pay back" their scholarships by performing community service projects. Many of these children never thought they could make it this far in school, and it is only through the help of caring people like you that they can continue their education.
Change a life today by making a scholarship donation online!

- $500 sponsors a middle school student.

- $750 sponsors a high school student.

Hold on just a second...what's a podcast?

A podcast is like an online radio show. It's usually recorded in the style of a talk radio broadcast. You can either listen to it on your computer (on a webpage or iTunes), or download the file and listen to it via your iPod or other mp3 player.
