The Class of 2020! 

Together these young people have volunteered more than 10,000 hours helping the homeless, serving veterans, serving in their faith communities, volunteering with literacy programs, starting nonprofits, and so much more.

All of the students are leading in their communities and schools. Whether it's providing blankets and coats to people in need, tutoring and mentoring younger students, teaching sign language, or distributing bread to the hungry, these youth are making an impact in their communities. Read more about them here.

Inspiration in challenging times

Now, perhaps more than ever, it is important to remember the good that people do. The ways we help each other and give back. Alisa's Angels supports students who make their communities better through their own selfless giving.

Alisa's Angels is dedicated to creating a ripple effect of caring throughout our communities. Inspired by Alisa who was committed to helping others, we support and empower students who are serving others.

Scholarship recipients become part of the Alisa’s Angels family, where they are empowered, encouraged and supported.

Making their communities better

Alisa’s Angels scholarship recipients go through a rigorous selection process. The most important criteria is service to others. And their service is truly inspiring. They support efforts as unique and varied as each of them. Just a few examples:
