Youth Action Committee announces availability of grants

The Youth Action Committee, of the Juneau Community Foundation, has requested proposals from Juneau nonprofit organizations and schools to promote success in high school by increasing awareness of the range of post-secondary opportunities available for high school graduates. These proposals should focus on ways to increase high school student knowledge of opportunities and options after graduation, thereby promoting success during high school.

Organizations may apply for grants of up to $3,000. Applications must be received by Jan. 6, 2014. YAC members will review all proposals and request meetings with the top applicants. Applications are available online at www.juneaucf.org.

The YAC consists of students from Juneau high schools, who are inspired to make a difference for young people in Juneau and improve the community through philanthropy and grant making. Annually, YAC members decide on a topic or area that they would like to address through grant funding that meets a challenge they seem among their peers.

Past topics have included: drug and alcohol abuse, and offering healthy activities.

This year, providing information on post high school options for young people is the selected topic area.

YAC members have raised funds from local organizations to provide these grants. They encourage organizations in the community to respond to the YAC goals and submit grant proposals.

Guy About Town: Help for a town made of people

Hey, all! I hope you’ve been having a healthy, enjoyable January despite the meteorological mood swings. Like seriously, it’s like it can’t decide whether it wants to try to rip the door off my house or knock on it gingerly and sell me cookies. I have the fortune, however, of not having windows in my office. See, I don’t have to watch the tumultuous perpetual gray on the one hand, and on the other I don’t have to feel bad about being inside when it’s sunny. I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
