Youth continues to be a priority area for the Foundation. Providing programs that support and encourage positive youth development is an essential investment in the bright future of St. Clair County.
In recent years, the Foundation has helped establish a strings education program in area schools, built a raised garden site for wheelchair bound and disabled students, and renovated a playground to meet safety and access standards. The Foundation has also funded a reading tutoring program for elementary students, a conflict resolution program for middle school and a mentoring program for at risk high school students.
