ABC is creating an exciting Scholarship opportunity to help youth in Guadalupe, Arizona stay in school.
YOU CAN CHANGE A LIFE!
This scholarship is named after a founding and long time ABC Board member, Jose Solarez, who passed away in 2012, to honor Jose’s concern for the young people in his home town community of Guadalupe.
Our current goal is to raise $5,000 for scholarships to help these young people.

Each year Flight 33 helps 250-to-300 students, pre-school through 12th grade, with guidance, tutoring, after school enrichment (including help with homework) and basic needs assistance, including shoes, clothes, hygiene items, and school supplies.
