There’s no question that Act Five is a significant investment.
There is A TON of value packed into eight months. Consistently, our graduates demonstrate:
*Act Five is heavily subsidized through the gifts of generous donors and partners. In an average year, Act Five’s “cost per student” is greater than $30,000.
What this includes:
Act Five students will be seen as volunteers on these trips through various charities, and they will be asked to fundraise in support of these charities and their service trip activities, with amounts ranging between $1000 and $3500.
While recognizing the high value of Act Five, we are committed to ease the barrier of costs as much as possible.
Thanks to the gifts of generous donors, Act Five is able to offer Financial Assistance based on individual need. For the 2023-2024 program year, Act Five distributed over $20,000 in financial aid.
If you are applying to Act Five and want to be considered for financial assistance, please complete our Financial Aid Form by March 15th, 2024. *Limited funding will remain for later applicants.
Through church communities, family, friends or schools, several Act Five students are “sent” to Act Five by the communities behind them.
Act Five will work with incoming students to write letters, prepare presentations and facilitate conversations to garner support from their “sending communities”.
There are some awards available through different organizations for those participating in programs like this – you’ll just need to search for them!
