Service Learning applications being accepted by NCCF

The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation is accepting applications for the Service Learning Mini-Grants Program for the 2024-25 school year. Since its inception, the Service Learning Mini-Grants Program has provided more than $60,000 in funding for projects in seven area school districts.

Local middle and high school teachers are encouraged to apply for projects that combine community service and classroom learning. Projects relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion are highly encouraged and strongly considered. Classrooms from all disciplines participate in this program: art, social studies, trades, science, and more.

Applications are available on the foundation’s website, along with the option to apply electronically, at www.nccfoundation.org/service-learning. Complete the form and return it to NCCF by March 31. The committee will announce the awards in May.
