About Project 150 Scholarship Program:
Project 150 is a non-profit charitable organization founded in December 2011 by two Nevada Natives, Don Purdue and Patrick Spargur, both graduates of Clark High School, who heard of and helped 150 homeless students at Rancho High School. Since then, Project 150 provides food, clothing, school supplies, sports equipment, shoes, and other special requests to over 1,900 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students. In January 2014, the SNHEP Youth Council, founded in 2009 by two teen sisters Senia and Sabrina Roybal, transitioned under Project 150’s umbrella. The Project 150 Youth Council Leadership Program focuses in leadership training, mentoring, scholarship fundraising, and college, career, and workforce readiness. Project 150’s goal is to collaborate with schools and community organizations to maximize resources and allow students to focus in achieving high school graduation, and be college, career & workforce ready. Project 150 helps over 1,900 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students break cycles, restore dreams, and begin new legacies . www.project150.org (http://www.project150.org/
