The staff here at Los Angeles Balloon Rides recently announced that we will be offering an annual scholarship to deserving students in Southern California as part of a new program. This is just the first part of our program to give back to the community.
Each year hundreds of hardworking and deserving students in SoCal are forced to quit their education. Working part time jobs or even full-time jobs to pay hefty college and university tuition fees is a big reason the number of dropouts from California college and universities has been on the rise. The increasing number of dropouts have created a sort of “vacuum” in the American job market, especially in Los Angeles, for highly skilled and educated individuals. Even though Los Angeles Balloon Rides may not be able to keep every deserving student in California afloat, the move will certainly ensure some of our students are not financially burdened to the extent of total mental exhaustion.
Los Angeles is currently home to many businesses of all sizes which have worked towards keeping students in school, college, and university. However, despite the effort put in by many businesses, there are still students dropping out at an alarming rate. So, with more companies like Los Angeles Balloon Rides pitching in, there will eventually be an improvement in the reported figures. Consequently, many companies, including ours, rely on skilled and experienced individuals and so the more there are, the better it will be for businesses of all sizes and types.
“Education is a fundamental human right across the world. Our goal is to make sure that we can keep as many students as we can afford in college or university. The program will certainly grow to encompass more students. That said we are not alone, there are many other businesses in L.A. offering scholarships and we are excited to join this elite community of businesses. At LA Balloon Rides, we have received a lot of love from the community, and we know how hard studying can be especially when you’re not doing so well financially. We hope to ensure that we do our part in helping students to continue their education in Southern California.”
Los Angeles Balloon Rides is in the final stages of launching the scholarship program at which point more details will be revealed. That being said, our program will mainly be geared towards students with good GPAs. Also, we may decide to look into the student’s financials to ascertain if they are in fact in need of help. Los Angeles Balloon Rides hopes that the program will contribute to keep more youngsters in college and university so that they graduate and become part of the US job market. We will announce exact scholarship figures soon.
