Our signature youth education and mentoring programs are the Youth Leadership Academy (YLA), for high school students, and Pathways to Success, for middle school students. Each program functions under the guidance and mentorship of our Education Committee. Each provides age-appropriate mentoring and tutorial services to 80 Savannah youth whose leadership potential is developed and have an interest and motivation to pursue post-secondary education.

The 100 also provides annual scholarship awards to deserving matriculating students who will be full-time students at accredited, post-secondary institutions based on Savannah 100 eligibility criteria. Scholarship dollars assist youth in completing educational goals by providing resources to offset expenses associated with tuition, books and housing. The scholarship program allows the 100 to identify potential youth leaders in our local communities and motivates them to achieve academic and community service excellence.
