Organizations who already receive funding from the United Way Leeds & Grenville are not eligible for Youth to Youth Board grants. Grant applications will be accepted up to 3:00 p.m. on October 30, 2016. Applications are available here or can be picked up at the United Way office at 42 George Street in Brockville.
The Youth to Youth Board is a Junior Board of Directors for the United Way Leeds & Grenville. Each of the nine high schools located in Leeds and Grenville have the opportunity to have representatives on the board. This year, there are an outstanding number of representatives and we are very proud to have them apart of the United Way team.
Melissa Hillier, Executive Director for United way says “The Youth to Youth Board and the grants they provide has been a fantastic compliment to United Way funding process. It is wonderful to see the junior board working together to help change lives of youth in our community.”
Darby Mallory, Youth to Youth Board President says “Being part of the United Way Board continues to be an incredible opportunity to ensure there continues to be groups within our communities that specifically target youth involvement. Our youth board continues to create positive impact within our community, understanding that the support could be for our neighbors, classmates or friends.”
