Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference

Ryan Christopher Hersh (RCH)

Ryan Christopher Hersh was an active participant with Hands4Hope and the goal of this scholarship is to continue his legacy by giving youth with limited means the opportunity to attend a summer camp in which they will be able to further develop an interest or skill.


This committee starts to meet in February each year and is composed of youth in middle school and high school from El Dorado and Sacramento Counties.


Members of this committee will be responsible for determining criteria for scholarships, creating and distributing the RCH Scholarship Application, marketing the scholarship program, reviewing completed applications, and awarding scholarships, while managing the program budget.

This Committee has been formed for 2024.
