Youth as Resources, a program of the United Way of Central Indiana, has announced the dates for its Boone County workshops to assist youth groups in applying for grants. The United Way’s Youth as Resources program serves Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan Counties.

Up to $1,000 per grant is available in Boone County for youth who identify community needs and design projects that use their skills, creativity and energy to help others. Groups may apply for funds to cover project expenses, materials, transportation and youth recognition. Youth groups must have an adult advisor and a non-profit sponsor, which may be a school, church, youth-serving or community agency.
