Yolo Community Foundation
The Yolo Community Foundation (YCF), an affiliate of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation (SRCF), announces that guidelines and the application process for the 2019 Yolo Youth Service Award (YoYoSA) scholarships are now available online at www.sacregcf.org and www.yolocf.org. The YoYoSA program is designed to promote Yolo County youth volunteering with local nonprofit organizations and encourages Yolo County nonprofits to engage with youth volunteers.
YCF seeks applications from high school seniors who have volunteered with a Yolo County nonprofit at least 60 hours during their junior and/or senior years of high school. YoYoSA student awardees will receive a $1000 scholarship to support post-high school education, which may include college, vocational or technical school. In addition, a $500 grant will be awarded to the nonprofit agency sponsoring each YoYoSA student scholarship winner.
Applications from students are due Friday, Mar. 8, and must be completed online. Sponsoring organizations also need to complete support materials and submit them to YCF. YoYoSA awardees and their sponsoring organizations will be recognized at a reception hosted by YCF in April.
YCF strives to boost local philanthropy by serving donors, nonprofits, and youth in the Yolo County area and is proud to recognize tomorrow’s leaders in local philanthropy through the YoYoSA program.
