Register Now! Youth-designed Volunteer Projects

Mel Monkelis, RSVP Program Director, sent the following information to the Neighborhood today.  The sign up deadline is Friday, so if you know a young person in the neighborhood who could get excited about this, be sure to let them know!  If they need help with a project idea, how about a sign for the Edgemoor Neighborhood?

The Volunteer Center and Communities in Schools have partnered to offer $5,000 in funding to selected youth-designed volunteer projects this summer. This project is called Dream, Design, Create – as it awards youth for dreaming up their own volunteer project in their neighborhood or school.  Funding will be awarded in each student category to include middle school, high school and university level. NEW:Elementary school  students with a dedicated adult project supervisor, may also submit a project. All are welcome.

The parents and grandparents in your associations (and  this might be YOU) might be interested in engaging their kids and grandkids in this funding opportunity.

I’m sure you have some neighborhood projects that could use some love and funding…we’d LOVE to help!

Please see the details below. The deadline for submissions is next Friday. Please don’t’ let that be an obstacle, though! The online project plan submission form could be filled out in minutes.

Key Dates:

·         May 29 – Submission Deadline

·         June 1 – Winning Projects selected

·         June 2 – July 31 – Projects Enacted
