Destination Dorm helps alleviate the financial stress of furnishing a freshman residence hall space for graduating high school seniors from Broward County Schools who have demonstrated academic excellence in the midst of financial hardship. This scholarship program assists students going to college through a Destination Dorm Box. These items will bring some basic comforts to their home away from home and provide an environment more conducive to learning.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Destination Dorm was founded by Meryl Raff, proud BRACE Advisor at Piper High School in Sunrise, Florida, and her daughter, Jamie Raff, a 6th grade math teacher at Ramblewood Middle School. Meryl and Jamie are extremely passionate about helping graduating seniors in Broward County Public Schools whose families are unable to provide the basic necessities required to furnish their dorm rooms. Meryl and Jamie developed the Destination Dorm Scholarship Program with hopes of relieving the financial burden placed on students, many of whom will be the first from their family to attend college, as they transition into higher education. The Jason Taylor Foundation is proud to parter with Meryl & Jamie to help bring the opportunity to as many deserving students as possible.
