2015 Grants Available for Youth

Don't miss the May 27 deadline for submitting a grant application for 2015 Youth Mission Trips and Children & Youth Summer Programs.

 

Youth Mission Trip Grants - 2015

Consider applying for a youth mission trip grant. If your parish collaborates with another to send youth ages 13-19 years on a mission trip to provide human or social services, this could be a wonderful way to help offset the cost for the trip. In many cases, an optimum model for funding is approximately 1/3 participant, 1/3 parish, and 1/3 diocese.

Criteria:
    Youth must have a connection to an Episcopal congregation
    There needs to be a collaboration of at least two Episcopal congregations
    The purpose of the trip must be to provide human or social services
    Youth should be ages 13-19 years
    100% of the grant must be used to facilitate the mission trip
    The application deadline is May 27
    Send photos / video of your trip including names of people pictured (send to bkondrich@dohio.org)
