    The Scholarship Program

    The ACT I Annual Scholarship Program recognizes and awards several local individuals who are actively working towards gaining or furthering their education and skill-set in working with and for the elderly of our community. In doing so, ACT I is actively contributing to the preparation of the next generation individuals who will be providing services to local seniors. Therefore, it is not just students who benefit from ACT I’s scholarship program, but the community at large. Not only do the businesses employing these individuals benefit from the continued education and training these students are receiving, but more importantly, our local aging and disabled population are also receiving better care and services – and for years to come.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of ACT I is to enhance and dignify the quality of life for the culturally diverse aging and disabled population here in the Coachella Valley. This is accomplished not only through the cooperation, promotion and partnership of our member organizations, but also by supporting the education of individuals pursuing degrees and careers in the health and elder care fields.
