Cape Cod Foundation Accepting Grant Proposals for Teen Programs

YARMOUTH PORT – The Cape Cod Foundation is now accepting grant proposals from local organizations trying to positively impact teenagers on Cape Cod.

The Foundation’s Cape Youth Force, made up of teenagers from Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, will review the applications and will award $1,000 to support projects and programs aimed at dealing with issues faced by local teens.

This year’s committee has said they are willing to fund a wide range of programs, from wildlife protection to substance abuse prevention and awareness.

The Cape Youth Force was founded in 2004 and is described as the only organization of its kind on Cape Cod.

“We hope to show students how rewarding community service is by engaging them in the grant-making process,” said Kristin O’Malley, the Executive Director of the Cape Cod Foundation. “We also encourage members of the community to contribute directly to the Community for Young People fund to enhance the students’ impact in the community.”

More information on how to apply for grant funding can be found at capecodfoundation.org.

The deadline for applications is May 10.
