IAMCBOB is our scholarship program for students who wish to attend college. For students who demonstrate a strong desire to acquire a higher level of education, we provide an all-expenses-paid ride to college. These students must be motivated to work to their best and fullest capacity while in school and to also give back to their communities by participating in civic engagement activities.
Contributing to the IAMCBOB scholarship program provides motivated students an all-expenses-paid college education, and in exchange, they act as service leaders to empower other youth to solve problems in their own communities.
As the country with one of the highest internal displacement rates in the world, Colombia is marred by horrible social injustices every day. Your contributions are not merely monetary, they are signals of hope. By contributing any amount, you are sending the message to these youth that they matter... that they are cared for. You are motivating them to become better citizens in their community and better ambassadors of education.
There are endless testimonials from our children filled with words of gratitude, optimism, and happiness. Words that no longer express hope but determination. They have wished and hoped for a helping hand and support system to help knock down those obstacles of social injustice, poverty, and internal displacement that one day hold them back from even considering becoming leaders and professionals. Now they have an even stronger voice and will to fight for what they and every child deserves; a proper education.
