"I believe it is important to volunteer one's time, knowledge, and resources to give back to one's community and to causes greater than oneself. Volunteerism is the recognition that we are all privileged in our own ways and that we always have the capacity to lend a helping hand to causes and individuals in need." -Oliver Sitt, MS ‘11

Philip Randolph High School in Harlem, New York and has now become a family of over 560 Scholars, representing 76 countries and selected from more than 200 high schools across Los Angeles County, New York City and Washington, D.C.

Starting in May 2020, soon after the coronavirus pandemic swept across the world and shut down many in-person connections, Milken Scholars began connecting over a shared love of books as well as a desire to continue engaging with one another virtually. Since that time almost three years ago, the group has read over ten different books across a multitude of genres, from non-fiction to comedy.
