Quote
“Today’s youth are stepping up to serve their communities in ever more interesting and important ways. From volunteering with local seniors to spearheading innovative projects that address some of the most complex issues facing our regions, young people are clearly engaged. This is in large part thanks to community-based, non-profit organizations that are helping youth acquire the skills, knowledge, experiences and values to be of service to others. I am happy to announce that Grants to Youth Organizations is again accepting applications from youth-based and youth-serving organizations for projects that prepare youth to serve, lead and inspire.”
