Environmental Education Funding Opportunity for Youth Projects - Nov 15th deadline
Thanks to the generous support of the US EPA, the Alaska Forum is proud to offer funding opportunities of up to $5000 through the Community Environmental Education Stewardship through Youth Involvement project. This program will support focused proposals from small communities (population less than 5000 in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington) where youth seek involvement in environmental stewardship efforts. Proposals will be selected where youth are matched with a local environmental professional or teacher who will mentor youth as they address a specific concern in the community and work to solve it. Non-profit 501c3 organizations, middle schools and high schools or districts may submit proposals.
Download the Request for Proposal document for detailed information. Deadline for submittals is November 15, 2012.
