On the evening of June 6th, the Simon Youth Foundation held its 3rd annual graduation ceremony at Burlington High School. Simon Youth Foundation graduates were surrounded by friends, family and the Burlington Mall Management team to accept their diplomas as they get ready to start their next chapter. Simon Youth Foundations (SYF) operates 35 Simon Youth Academies in 15 states, including one at Burlington High School which provides an alternative high school environment designed to meet students’ unique needs and help them reach graduation day through the partnership with local public-school districts and their neighboring centers.
Since its inception in 1998, Simon Youth Foundation has helped more than 17,500 students on the verge of dropping out of high school graduate and has awarded $17 million in scholarships. Simon Supports Education and encourages shoppers to help SYF continue this incredibly legacy.
During the ceremony, the Simon Youth Foundation and Burlington Mall honored one student who earned a 2019 Simon Youth Foundation Scholarship award valued at $8,000 to benefit the pursuit of a post-second degree.
