The Northeast Michigan Youth Advisory Council (NEMYAC) recently awarded 20 new grants totaling $18,411 to local nonprofits and schools in Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency and Presque Isle Counties. Youth Advisory Councils in each county are comprised of young people, ages 12 to 21, who are committed to improving the lives of children and youth in the community through grant awards. NEMYAC members review grant applications and make recommendations to the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan board of trustees for final approval.
(The next NEMYAC grant application deadline is October 15.)
The following nonprofits received grants from the four-county Youth Advisory Council as listed:
Presque Isle County
Created through a matching grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, local Youth Advisory Councils help young people learn about the unique needs of their communities, as well as the importance of philanthropy and charitable giving - traits that will affect their lives long after they graduate from high school.
