Local High School Students Grant $10,035 to Youth Programs

The YAPPERS are local high school students who serve as the Community Foundation’s youth grantmaking board. 

YAPPERS grants to youth-serving nonprofits help organizations strengthen and grow their programs. Preference is given to proposals that focus on meeting basic human needs, combating violence, providing opportunities for youth, and/or raising awareness for issues that local youth face.

This year, the YAPPERS awarded five grants totaling $10,035:

Hills and Dales Child Development Center — $200 for Inclusive Summer Music Jam Sessions
