IMPACT Youth Council Application
Ashland County Community Foundation’s IMPACT Youth Council offers high school students the opportunity to serve as grantmakers.
IMPACT is an acronym for Imagine Making Philanthropy an Ashland County Tradition. Members of the IMPACT Youth Council learn about the needs of youth in Ashland County and then review grant applications from organizations that provide services to meet those needs. The students then decide how grant dollars should be awarded from ACCF’s Youth Empowerment Fund.
Each spring, we look for students who will be sophomores, juniors and seniors in the following school year. Students from Ashland, Hillsdale, Loudonville and Mapleton high schools as well as the Ashland-West Holmes Career Center, Ashland County Community Academy, Genesis Christian Academy or home schools may apply.
The IMPACT Youth Council requires a time commitment involving attendance at monthly meetings on Sundays during the school year, periodic field trips to nonprofit agencies within Ashland County. Participants are also expected to complete a small amount of work outside scheduled meetings.
If you have any questions regarding the program or the application, please e-mail Mindy Howman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application period is now closed for the 2023-2024 school year.
