Youth and Education

At Coastal Community we know that young people are our future. That’s why we support youth through a variety of programs including scholarships, school events, and local sports teams and tournaments.


Coastal Community Scholarships put ideas into action. By inspiring youth to demonstrate their community leadership, our scholarships give students the opportunity to make positive changes in their communities as they fund their post-secondary education.

Eight $2,000.00 scholarships are available, and an additional $500.00 award for the two students with the best plans. Learn more>>
