The Loudoun Bar Foundation proudly supports the Beat the Odds® program for Loudoun County youth, a scholarship program designed to reward the achievement and success of at-risk youth in the community. Beat the Odds® scholarships are awarded to youth who have overcome significant life obstacles by rising above such issues as poverty, abuse, family breakup or substance addictions. The financial awards are given to assist deserving students in pursuing their goals for either college education or vocational training.
Loudoun’s program identifies and awards scholarships to youth who have received services from local agencies such as Juvenile Court Services, Social Services, Loudoun County Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse. The Loudoun Beat The Odds® committee works with local agencies to select and honor students who demonstrate academic excellence and have the strength and determination to “beat the odds.”
The Beat the Odds® Committee is comprised of individuals drawn from several agencies to include: the Leesburg Police Department, the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, the Office of the Public Defender, Loudoun County MH/MR/SA, the Juvenile Court Services Unit and the Department of Family Services.
