Beat The Odds Image

Beat The Odds

The CDF Beat the Odds® program honors outstanding high schools students who have overcome tremendous adversity, demonstrated academic excellence and given back to their communities. Started in 1990, the program identifies and rewards young people who have experienced significant hardship in their lives and supports and trains them to become future leaders in adulthood. Their grit and resilience are overwhelming. Their stories give hope and remind us that none of us have a right to give up on any child or youth.
Samantha is one of the five exceptional 2018 #CDFBeatTheOdds scholarship recipients from the Los Angeles area. Learn more about the program and help us make their dreams come true. A product of Children's Defense Fund–California
