Youth as Resources, a program of United Way of Central Indiana, will host three workshops for Hamilton County youth interested in applying for grants. More than $12,000 is available for the 2013-2014 grant cycle for Hamilton County youth-led projects.
YAR makes small 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.
Jan. 24 is the Hamilton County grant deadline. Youth groups and adult leaders who are interested in developing a community service project and applying for a grant must attend one of the following workshops in Hamilton County. An online grant application process is being used and login information and how to apply will be given at the workshops:
• 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at University High School, Carmel
• 7 to 8 p.m. Nov. 19 at Hamilton East Public Library Fishers branch
• 7 to 8 p.m. Nov. 21 at Hamilton East Public Library Noblesville branch
