Crystal Green and her son are still savoring their scholarship win. “Our passion is cooking, so after we moved into our new home my son and I decided we wanted to have a food truck,” she says. I found out about the VGA scholarship and applied for it, never really thinking we would win, but we did!” Green attends culinary school, and after school, her son spends his spare time in junior chef classes. “It’s hard sometimes but we just keep looking at our vision board and thinking about how all this work will pay off when we are serving delicious food from our fabulous new truck!” That drive is what helped Crystal become one of the first $2,500 winners of Atlanta Habitat’s new Vision, Goals, Action scholarship (VGA).
The VGA education program was launched by an anonymous donor whose investment was increased by a grant from the Atlanta Women’s Foundation. VGA empowers homeowners and their families to develop a life vision that builds on their homeownership experience. The program focuses on building a sense of confidence, independence and community in homeowners by supporting their personal growth. It provides scholarships for education and entrepreneurship and includes training on goal-setting. So if you have a dream, and it involves education to get you to the next step, apply for a VGA scholarship today!
