YES Communities 04/01/2021

We are thrilled to announce the renewal of the Building Futures Scholarship Program beginning April 1st, 2021. YES Communities will be awarding $25,000 in annual scholarships for our residents and team member’s children to help pursue their dreams through education.

The YES Building Futures Scholarship Program provides $2,500 to seven residents and/or their children, along with three children of employees currently enrolled in a U.S. post-secondary institution, a technical college or a trade school.

YES Communities wants to help the residents of our affordable housing communities and the families of our team members that operate our amazing mobile home communities day in and day out. Our resident’s desire to pursue their educational goals is at the forefront of our mission as a company.  “Building Futures is about giving back to residents and staff that strive to make our world a better place each day. We hope that these scholarships will inspire our community to follow their dreams,” said Steven Schaub, CEO of YES Communities. “We are delighted to support their education and look forward to seeing their accomplishments.” 

The 2020 Building Futures Scholarship was a huge success and we are overjoyed to be able to increase the overall scholarship amount in 2021. Tyrell Bawuah-Hudlin, a 2020 scholarship winner, said: “I was so incredibly honored and excited to have been chosen to receive the YES Communities Building Futures Scholarship. I’ve heard many great stories about how helpful this has been to so many others and it has proven the same for me. This scholarship has helped me exponentially in my junior year of college and has allowed me to be able to finish my degree and pursue my dreams of becoming an educator. I couldn't be more thankful!”

Melissa Graham, another 2020 scholarship winner from Independence Station community said: “I was a recipient of the 2020 YES Communities Building Futures Scholarship and I used the scholarship funds towards my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I am entering my final year at Western Governors University, and with the help from the YES Communities' Scholarship, I will soon be entering a classroom to conduct my student teaching. So excited to start shaping the young minds of my community!”

We cannot wait to see what our scholarship winners do next and to get to know all of the 2021 applicants! The deadline for residents to apply is June 1, 2021. For more details, visit:
