Each year a group of students participate in our Leader Lab / Give Next program. This is a school-based youth grantmaking program for middle and high school students in Larimer County. Through the program, local businesses, foundations, and individuals become classroom donors by providing each participating school with $5,000 to award to nonprofits in Larimer County, Colorado. With the financial support of these generous donors, students design and manage their own grantmaking programs.
The last week of September, our Leader Lab / Give Next students were able to join the Year's Kick Off Event - What an amazing way to surround our students with other Give Next participants and build their energy for the work ahead of them. We are so proud of our students standing up for a cause and supporting our community!
