Description

KOL Education Foundation is a youth mentoring organization founded in Solano County designed to work with at-risk high school youth to help them develop their academic skills, leadership potential, and to give them financial support. The members realized a need in the community to encourage students to pursue a higher education after high school and to do productive activities in the community. We have given over $200,000 in scholarship and will continue to support the youth in Solano County.
