Secret Pocket Scholarships

Play / Pause Video Background

A Secret Pocket Scholarship allows a student to participate and enjoy the experience of Break the Barriers.

Several hundred students come through Break the Barriers’ doors every day, eager to master their skills and share in the excitement of accomplishments achieved by others. However, we often have students who must put their victory on HOLD for financial reasons.

Outreach Details

Applications for a Secret Pocket Scholarship are available at Break the Barriers office. *Please bring proof of income (ex. First page of most recent tax return).

When you give to Secret Pocket, you are helping students experience the excitement of barriers being broken! A full year scholarship is $744 and a half year scholarship is $372, but any donation amount is welcome. To give, click the donate button and put “Secret Pocket” in PayPal’s special instruction box, on the memo line of your check, or call our main office at (559) 432-6292 and request that your donation go to Secret Pocket.

 

I can’t explain how thankful I am for all of my sponsors. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you. I also want to say a special thanks to all the coaches, you guys are great! I hope you never change because when I was there, everything was perfect – Break the Barriers is the Best!
