Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Scholarships
WWJ scholarships help college-bound scholars alleviate some of their families' financial burdens they might encounter sending their children to college. Through our scholarships, we look to represent the community and the people they are accountable to, and instill a greater sense of belonging and motivation to make it through higher education.
WWJ annual Peace Walk creates unifying spaces for peace and partnerships in the community to enhance the quality of life for all. Our powerful walks have created opportunities to partner with local CBOs, Community Precinct Councils, Youth groups, and multigenerational community members in our mission.

The Dorm Drive Project was initiated in 2018 to support a high school senior’s transition to college by purchasing dorm room supplies. A committee comprised of WWJ Members organize into teams and are assigned a dorm drive recipient. To date, the Dorm Drive has furnished 12 dorm rooms for first-time fabulous freshmen.
