Community Foundation youth council awards over $2,940 in grants.

The Youth Advisory Council of the Community Foundation for Mason County recently awarded $2,940 in support of teacher mini-grants. Whether it’s a new idea or a little extra needed to make lesson plans great, teacher mini-grants are made available annually to help Mason County public and private school teachers in the classroom. This year’s teacher mini-grants include support for several projects at Mason County Central Schools, Mason County Eastern Schools, and West Shore Educational Service District. They include funds for:

·         A classroom library

·         Anti-bullying books and special programming

·         Sensory items for a special education room

·         Peer-to-peer program expansion

·         Small group reading intervention program

The Youth Advisory Council is made up of 25 student representatives from Mason County schools and involves young people in solving real problems affecting their communities and peers. Council members help set policy and guide distribution of $15,000 a year in grants to promising youth-related projects in Mason County.

“The process of grantmaking means a lot to all of the members of the Youth Advisory Council,” said Kendall Biggs, youth advisor council president.  We think it’s great that these grants can give teachers the opportunity to help implement goals unique to various subjects and grades.”
