Have an idea by kids for kids? The St. Charles Youth Commission wants to hear it. Funding is awarded to youth-designed and youth-driven projects directed toward the promotion of healthy lifestyles among young people in the community. Any group or organization can apply for funds throughout the year by completing the funding application.
The Youth Commission is optimistic that among all of the slogans, posters, and activities that could be promoted, the ones that emerge from the thinking and experiences of the youth themselves have high potential for success.
Applicants, including groups from schools, churches, scouts and others, are directed to consider how they can make a difference that will impact today’s youth. Guidelines for funding requests are outlined and included in the application packet. Applications are available at the St. Charles Municipal Center Building, 2 E. Main Street, or download an application from the City website.
Direct questions about funding requests to Sara Cass, Senior Administrative Assistant for the Police Department, at 630.443.3777 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Youth Commission visit the Youth Commission web page.
