Language trip to Toulouse, France

Helena got accepted to a very competitive program to go on four-week French language and culture educational trip to Toulouse, France in July 2018! See High School Abroad for more information.

Helena has worked so hard to earn this opportunity. She is a junior on the high honor roll and has over a 4.0 GPA at York School. She has a strong A in French III Honors and has been dreaming of going to France to become more proficient in French. She is the President of York's chapter of Junior States of America, the editor of York students' literary magazine, and a member of the honor choir.

Helena has earned a generous scholarship based on her academic performance, but as a single mother, I still don't have the means to fulfill her dreams on my own. I'm asking for your help so that Helena can take advantage of this incredible opportunity.

In order to accept the scholarship, we need to put a deposit of $1000 down by January 8, 2018. If you have the resources and are willing to make a donation - even just $20 will help - please consider this worthy cause. Helena would be overjoyed to get to have this once-in-a-lifetime experience. And I would be forever in gratitude to you for making it happen.
