SARI WADE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP - $1000

The Sari Wade Memorial Scholarship is bestowed upon a youth who was (or is) a ward of the San Francisco Foster Care System and who is continuing their education beyond high school. The scholarship was created in loving memory of Sari Wade, a former board member and Child Welfare Worker, who dedicated more than thirty-eight years to assist youth in the foster care system. Sari Wade was a dedicated youth advocate, beloved board member, and voice of wisdom on behalf of San Francisco foster children. One of Sari's many passions was the pursuit of higher education, so in her honor City Youth Now recognizes and awards an outstanding youth from the foster care system and is attending college or university.

JOAN COYNE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP - $2500

The Joan Coyne Scholarship was created to reward TWO college-bound youth who were either in the San Francisco Foster Care or the Juvenile Justice systems. This scholarship was created in 2014 in loving memory of Joan Coyne, to recognize her many years of service and contribution to the disadvantaged youth of San Francisco. Joan was passionate about children and always wanted to see them succeed, despite their many challenges. City Youth Now will recognize and award this scholarship to TWO meritorious youth at our Spring Gala.
