2015-16 Scholarship Information
The Junior League of Central & North Brevard provides two scholarships each year to Brevard County high school seniors who are pursing a college education and have demonstrated voluntarism in school and community.

Recipients will be announced in Florida Today.
Students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer. The JLCNB’s Reading Rockstars program has a nearly 95% success rate at preventing Summer Slide in entering 3rd grade students that participate in our Cocoa Boys and Girls Club program. Meaning, test scores were the same or better at the end of summer for the kids in our program. Summer Slide can happen to all children, but at-risk children are often less likely to have equal access to summer learning opportunities. We believe literacy is the pathway to long term economic and social development for our kids and our community. Reading Rockstars meets twice a week over the summer at the Cocoa Boys and Girls Club. Along with hands-on activities with trained reading volunteers from Rolling Readers, community ‘rockstars’ read to the kids and answer questions about careers such as law enforcement, graphic design, firefighting, becoming a judge, a baseball player or even a chef.
