Program Overview

In collaboration with LIBERTY Dental and the Los Rios Community College District, IYT established the LIBERTY Dental Health Champions of Tomorrow Scholarship program to support the completion of study for Associate Degree and/or Certification programs in the field of dentistry. Specifically targeted toward African American young men entering the Dental Assisting and/or Dental Hygiene Career Education (CE) Programs at Los Rios’s Sacramento City College Campus, this program helps to address barriers to students’ post-secondary education completion by providing financial assistance, ongoing learning opportunities, academic support and by matching students with mentors from within the dental profession. Building on the successful IYT Community College (IYT CC) program, recipients of this scholarship will become part of a larger network of young men of color supporting one another toward completion of their post-secondary education goals.
