Grant Opportunity

This grant opportunity is now open. The nine public school districts in The Rapides Foundation service area are invited to apply for the 2019-20 Youth Volunteer School District Grant, which seeks to provide linkages among students, schools and nonprofit organizations for community service, build leadership skills among high school students, promote student achievement of the Louisiana Department of Education's Community Service Diploma Endorsement, and foster a lifelong commitment to being engaged in the community. The grant will provide funds to support the facilitation of Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) Club meetings and project activities by school staff. The funding opportunity is open to public school districts in Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn parishes.
