Youth GrantMakers Council

YGMC LogoThe Youth GrantMakers Council (YGMC) is a youth organization focused on improving the community by providing grants to youth-led projects. YGMC was created to directly involve youth in the grant making process.

YGMC consists solely of high school students who are dedicated and proud to be at the forefront of change. The current council consists 12-15 members representing all five different schools in Saline County. They are diverse in age, race, sex, religion, and economic status, but they all have one thing in common: they want to make a difference.
