The Youth Action Committee, of the Juneau Community Foundation, is issuing grants to Juneau charities with the goal of addressing the needs of teens at risk. Grant focus topics include preventing suicide, empowering teens through educational and vocational services, preventing substance abuse, and promoting healthy relationships.
Organizations may apply for grants up to $5,000. The YAC members will review all proposals and make site visits to the top applicants. Applications must be received by October 20, 2010. Applications are available online at www.juneaucf.org. For more information, call 463-3223.
With the help of the Juneau Community Foundation and local organizations, YAC members strive to improve the lives of their peers. They encourage organizations in the community to respond to the YAC goals and submit grant proposals.
