Aya Healthcare, a leading travel nurse staffing and healthcare workforce solutions company, is proud to announce a matching grant program to support highly motivated, economically disadvantaged students in Oakland and other San Francisco Bay Area communities. Through August 31, 2018 Aya Healthcare will match funds raised by Future Superstars to support Bay Area students. Additional supporters of the initiative include popular Bay Area businesses, including a leading professional sports team.
The primary purpose of Future Superstars is to provide scholarships and other educational assistance to youths who are low-income and/or disadvantaged based on the belief that all underprivileged youths can develop into future superstars with the right encouragement and support.
“Giving back to the communities we operate in is an integral part of Aya Healthcare’s overall mission,” said Aya Healthcare President and CEO, Alan Braynin. “Our partnership with Future Superstars allows us to increase our impact throughout the Bay area and provide a pathway to higher education for students who may not have the opportunity otherwise.”
The matching grant will help create five $4,000 scholarships for deserving students. The funds will also help contribute to school supplies, meals and educational programs for students.
“Aya Healthcare’s focus on putting people first is completely aligned with the mission of Future Superstars,” said Desmond Tan, Director of Future Superstars. “With Aya’s help we’ll be able to quadruple the scholarships normally given and support an expanded group of diverse and underprivileged students. We’re thrilled to have them as a partner.”
