Open to Florida students who are currently or have previously been served by the Department of Juvenile Justice. Awards may contribute to tuition for post-secondary education, supplies, transportation, education or employability assistance with funding made directly to the vendor. YIA assists in getting youth "back on track" and making positive changes and choices in their lives. It could be as simple as paying for a state ID card so the youth can apply for employment. Or, providing bus passes so they can get to that job. We have kids that need their GED test fees paid as well as kids who are looking to FJJF to help with college expenses.
