Youth Services

The Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows Lodge #143 is offering scholarships for students wishing to further their education after graduation from High School.

To be eligible for consideration, you must be:

  1. a resident of the Coastside Community (Montara to Pescadero);
  2. a student planning to attend an accredited college or university for the current/upcoming academic year, or;
  3. a student planning to enroll in a certified program at an accredited trade school for the current/upcoming academic year.

Greetings, Odd Fellows! This is a later than planned report on the 2019-2020 scholarships awarded by the Youth Services Committee (YSC). As a result of you showing up and working at our concerts, clothing swap, raffles as well as your direct contributions, we donated a total of $13,000 to ten Half Moon Bay High School graduates and three scholars already attending college.

Pescadero High School student Jacqueline Nabor has dreams of moving across the country, attending New York University and becoming a lawyer. She’ll get a taste of those dreams when the 16-year-old attends the Odd Fellows United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth Program.

Our Scholarship Fund Mission

The Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows Youth Services Committee is based upon the conviction that an educated society is essential to a healthy democracy. The Half Moon Bay YSC, which has been in operation for over a decade, provides access to post-secondary education to members of our community who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.

The Odd Fellows see higher education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, communities, and nations. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational attainment and assures positive educational outcomes are accessible to all regardless of economic circumstance. In our community, doors will not be closed to those who lack financial resources, and post-secondary education will be available to all with the potential to succeed.

The All-Seeing Eye


To us, the all-seeing eye represents the universal spiritual presence that is embodied in all of us as we do good work for our community, for our environment, and for all humanity.
