Simon Youth Foundation - Simon Youth Academy
As Simon’s charity of choice, Simon Youth Foundation® (SYF) fosters and improves educational opportunities, career development and life skills to transform the lives of at-risk youth. SYF partners with local public school districts to build high schools called Simon Youth Academies inside Simon malls, which provide students at risk of dropping out of high school with the personalized support they need to graduate. Since 1999, Simon Youth Academies have maintained a 90 percent high school graduation rate, helping thousands of students earn their high school diplomas. SYF also awards more than $1 million in scholarships annually to graduating seniors in Simon mall communities to further their education.
