High school students will have an opportunity to support local programming for youth, deepen their connection to place and develop leadership skills. The program aims to increase opportunities for youth to have direct involvement and decision-making roles in their communities by giving them a voice in grantmaking in the region.
At the core of the program will be a youth committee representing a diversity of life experience, regional knowledge, and personal interests.
Applications to be part of the Empower Coös Youth Grants Program are now open, and being accepted until May 4, 2018. Apply now!
