For 10 years, One Future has been giving students scholarships so their goals can become a reality. Cristal Salcido was a previous recipient, she says it really helped her be able to afford to go to college.

'Every year, I received $1,500 when I was in community college and that went up to 2,000 when I was in university so that was a big help," Sacido said.
