Community Services Consortium Receives Grant to Train Low Income Teens

Sue McGuire-thompson, Albany CSC Operations Manager receives a grant award from South Albany High School Community 101 program for $975. The grant money will provide job/work skills and experience for teens with low income through the River JAVA Coffee Kart.

Community 101, a program of The Oregon Community Foundation, with major support from the PGE Foundation, is a classroom based program that provides students opportunities to be involved in their communities through grantmaking and volunteering.

Students work together to identify community needs, research nonprofits, conduct site visits, review grant applications and make funding decisions. Each classroom has $5,000 to award in grants to community nonprofits.
C101 represents an innovative collaboration of schools, businesses and charitable organizations. Students acquire the tools to bring about positive change in their communities.
