Media Fellowship House believes that a better future requires an investment in our young people. That investment can be made by all of us in various ways. Whether it be the time we spend with our children at home or the support we offer to different community programs like our Youth Coalition, Media Fellowship House believes it is vital to help guide our youth and support them as they become the leaders of tomorrow.

To that end, Media Fellowship House created the Dorothy James Scholarship. Named in honor of one of our founders, this annual award offers financial support to any Delaware County high school senior interested in pursuing continuing education – college/university, trade school, certificate program, or similar.

To be eligible, students watch Media Fellowship House’s video entitled, “Words of the Heart” which tells the story of Dorothy James, her great-grandfather, Thomas Garrett as well as the founding of Media Fellowship House. Once finished with the video, the students will then write a 500-1000 word essay expressing their feelings about the video and what they would do to help improve our community.

High school students must be registered with the Marie and Cynthia Jetter College and Career Center of the Chester Education Foundation. For information about programming, email collegeandcareercenter@chestereducation.org
