The Youth Advisory Committee is accepting applications and proposals for the annual Youth Mini Grant program. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 1, at 5:00 p.m.
The Youth Mini Grant provides grant money to Dublin middle and high school organizations or clubs that offer performing arts, sports, multicultural awareness, health awareness, or other youth activities that support projects or programs serving or benefiting Dublin youth.
To qualify, the organization or club must be based in Dublin, have an adult sponsor, and whose roster must be made up of at least 75% Dublin residents who are of middle school or high school age. The organization or club must submit an application and proposal that describes the organization, how the funds will benefit Dublin youth, and what the funds will be specifically used for. If a grant has been awarded in the past to the same organization, a brief review of how the money was spent and how it benefited the group will need to be highlighted in this year's presentation.
Applications can be completed and submitted online, emailed to Liz.Elliott@dublin.ca.gov, or submitted in-person at the Shannon Community Center (Attn: Liz Elliott, 11600 Shannon Avenue, Dublin, CA 94568). Selected applicants will be notified on Friday, October 29, to present their proposal at the Youth Advisory Committee meeting on Wednesday, November 17, at 7:00 p.m. at the Dublin Senior Center. A youth member or members, along with the adult sponsor of the organization or club, must conduct the presentation and inform the Committee about their submitted proposal.
