Youth Services


The Odd Fellows believe in supporting the educational goals of Coastside youth. Thank you to all members for helping these deserving students achieve their goals.

IOOF Youth Services Committee members, Larkin Evans and Katherine Polk, have been mentoring their previous scholarship recipients.

 Congratulations to Michelle and Mitzi Hernandez who are sophomores at UC Berkeley and both hope to become medical doctors.


That’s exactly what the Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows did at their May social meeting. The Pumpkin Bots are the HMB High School Robotics Team and the students demonstrated their robot, Zip Tie, and told their story. Students Ana Linares, Samantha Norris, Andrea Miguel- Delores, Eli Dill and Jackson Shui attended the Odd Fellows meeting with parents and mentors Matt Noris, Chris Doty, Mey Wong and Sean Riordan.

The arts are important for our community, our world and our soul. The Odd Fellows provides special scholarships for young adults pursuing higher education in the performing, visual and mechanical arts. Your gifts help us assist students like this promising musician.

We're helping Tyler follow his muse.

tyler“I’ve always had an affinity for music. Ever since eighth grade I was writing my songs. I used these songs to help me cope with my fits of anxiety throughout my school years. Although I still hold that fear, I keep it close to me, knowing that whatever happens, in college I'll be choosing the path I want. While I might not be great at it yet, I believe that if I am passionate about it and work hard, it could be my future.”
