United Way’s Youth as Resources announces grants available for youth-led community service projects
Do you know of a youth organization that could use grant funding to lead a community service project? Youth as Resources would like to help!
Youth as Resources (YAR) makes grants to youth who identify community needs and design projects that use their skills, creativity and energy to help others.
Groups may apply for up to $1,000 to cover project expenses, materials, transportation and youth recognition. Youth groups must have an adult advisor and a nonprofit sponsor, which may be a school, church, youth-serving or community agency.
Youth groups and adult leaders interested in applying for a grant must attend a workshop in Hamilton County. An online grant application process is being used. Login information and how to apply will be given at the following workshops:
· Tuesday, November 6, 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at University High School, Carmel
· Tuesday, November 20, 7:00-8:00 p.m. at Fishers Public Library, Fishers
· Thursday, November 29, 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Noblesville Public Library, Noblesville
