Each year, select high school students are chosen to participate in Aslan’s Servant Leadership Training. These young people are singled out because of their desire to attend college or trade school upon graduation from high school. This group participates in special activities and mentoring that encourages them in their goal of post-high school study. Each spring, Aslan sponsors a special trip to colleges from New Jersey to Virginia in order to inspire the youth and help them to decide where they want to attend.
In one year alone, Aslan had seven young men and women graduate from high school and enter college. Because of the success of our Servant Leadership Training, Aslan established a college scholarship assistance program. One year, we provided Aslan graduate, Jason, with a $1,500 scholarship for a winter semester of study at Wroxton College in England.
Over a five-year period, Aslan provided $22,000 in scholarship assistance for Ebony who had participated in Aslan from the age of 8. Ebony graduated from Clark Atlanta University with her degree in Religion and Communications. She subsequently returned to New Jersey on a number of occasions to speak to new generations of Aslan children.
Aslan also provided over $22,000 in scholarship assistance to another of our graduates, Earnest. Earnest was privileged to complete an internship with NASA in Washington, D.C. before graduating from Georgia State University with a degree in Engineering.
Sonny, another Aslan graduate, was provided with over $6,000 in scholarship assistance to attend Baltimore International University. He then graduated with a degree in Business and Culinary Arts and has remained in Baltimore as a top chef in Baltimore’s famed Wharf area.
Many other Aslan graduates have gone on to college with great success. Lynn graduated from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey. Although Lynn was on full scholarship at Princeton, we still provided financial aid for special projects not covered through his scholarship. Lynn graduated with a 3.9 GPA!
