This program is an opportunity for sophomores, juniors and seniors from Ashland, Hillsdale, Loudonville and Mapleton High Schools, the Ashland County-West Holmes Career Center, Ashland County Community Academy and Home Schoolers.
The students chosen to participate on the IMPACT Youth Council will work as a team to gain awareness of the needs of youth in Ashland County and then review grant applications for programs that provide services to meet those needs. The Ashland County Community Foundation will provide the funding for which the team will be given decision-making authority to grant award monies to fund the programs chosen by the IMPACT Youth Council. The IMPACT Youth Council requires a time commitment involving attendance at scheduled meetings during the school year, periodic field trips to non-profit agencies within Ashland County, and additional projects to be determined by members of the IMPACT Youth Council. Students may also have the opportunity to attend other youth philanthropy events as available.
Students who are chosen for the IMPACT Youth Council will be required to attend an informational meeting with a parent or guardian prior to participating in the program. The date for that meeting will be communicated after Council members are selected for the upcoming year.
DEADLINE TO APPLY IS APRIL 30.
