CESF recognizes the responsibility of and is committed to providing qualifying students and young adults an additional source of funding, in the form of scholarships, to attend a college or trade school of their choice.

CESF provide students and young adults an opportunity for 1:1 mentoring beyond high school, into college, and their careers.
