YOUTH COMMUNITY FUND
The Youth Community Fund was formed to provide high school students from Darien the opportunity for leadership, understanding local needs and those organizations addressing those needs, and effecting positive change in their community.
After grant reviews and agency visits The Youth Community Fund recommended grants of $500 to ARI of Connecticut, $1,000 to the Carver Center, $1,750 to Boys & Girls Club of Stamford, $1,000 to Kids in Crisis and $750 to Inspirica for 2012.
“For me, the greatest part of the Youth Community fund is not only getting to know a variety of non-profit organizations in our community, but also learning to work together with the other YCF members through the grant making process. It's a unique experience that I would recommend to any teenager in our town." Katie Stueber, 2011-2012 YCF President
Applications are now being accepted for the 2012-2013 Youth Community Fund Board.
