Kenosha County Youth As Resources (YAR) grant applications are now being accepted for the 2021-22 granting year until March 11. Grants of up to $500 are available for Kenosha County youth who are making a difference in their communities.

Qualifying groups of two or more youth, grades K-12, will have a sponsor organization such as a church, school or community agency. In addition to an organizational sponsor, groups must have an adult sponsor as well.

Grant proposals will be presented to the youth-led YAR board at the proposal review meeting on March 15, 2022. Download the grant application on the YAR webpage.

The YAR definition of “community service” is:

“Youth and adults contributing time together to make a positive change which addresses a community need.”

Projects that clearly meet this definition will be considered for funding.

Youth As Resources

Youth As Resources is an organization that funds youth-designed and youth-led community service projects through its grant-giving program. Eligible community service projects are ones that benefit Kenosha County communities and individuals.

YAR is made possible by a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Kenosha County and the United Way of Kenosha County.
