---- — Youth as Resources is holding three upcoming workshops to assist youth groups in applying for community improvement grants. YAR, a program of the United Way of Central Indiana, awards grants of up to $1,000 each year for Boone County youths who identify community needs and design projects that use their skills, creativity and energy to help others. Groups may apply for funds to cover project expenses, materials, transportation, and youth recognition. Youth groups must have an adult adviser and a not-for-profit sponsor, which may be a school, church, youth-serving or community agency. For more of the story, see Thursday's Lebanon Reporter.
