Funding for this program is provided by our Youth Advisory Council.
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) brings high school students from throughout the county together to provide grants to programs that impact their peers. The YAC is made up of student representatives and adult advisors from 5 Oceana County schools and provides over $30,000 per year in grant awards that impact youth issues. Our Youth Advisory Council invites teachers to apply for mini-grants to help them out in the classroom. Whether it’s a new idea or that little extra you need to make your lesson plans great, you can brighten your classroom with a little help from our youth.
NEW this year- you spoke, and we listened! Teacher mini grants will be available once a year, application deadline is August 30th.
