Yount Program for Educational Advancement
The Yount Fund, administered by the Perpetual Education Fund Department, LDS Church
The Yount Program seeks to help Church members advance in their education. To accomplish this goal, the program offers materials to increase educational success and a student loan program in four geographical areas. Southern Californiain general is one of the areas.
There are four main tabs on the Yount webpage
- Education and the Gospel – Talks, scriptures, and counsel on the importance of education in Latter-day Saint lives
- Parents and families – Parents have a major influence on children’s education. They have materials to help your children succeed.
- Students – Materials for those wanting to further their education including financial aid of various types–scholarships, FAFSA, etc., Yount Loan information (in theHuntington Beach area, this is only for BYU Pathways online students) and career information
- Priesthood Leaders – Information on the Young Program for priesthood and auxiliary leaders
There is a wealth of information here for both parents and students. It does take a little bit of work and some research to find those items that may be applicable specifically for your needs but keep at it.
There are a lot of useful links to check.
