A youth organization in Bangor is working to help other groups that support area young people. The Interact Leaders Club is looking for interested parties to apply.

The Bangor Y’s Interact Leaders Club provides an opportunity for young people in grades 9 through 12 to develop leadership and team-building skills through charitable projects. Co-sponsored by the Bangor Area Breakfast Rotary, the club has coordinated events in recent years to raise nearly $7,500 in support of the Cancer Care Center, Africare, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, Water.Org, and Free the children. Members also spend more then twenty-five hundred hours each year to volunteer at places like the Ronald McDonald House and the Bangor Humane Society.

Adriana Hopkins says the latest project will benefit others who work with area young people. The Interact Leaders Club has been given a five thousand dollar grant, on the condition that they split it up into mini-grants that will be awarded to area organizations that work with young people. But interested parties have to apply to be considered.

There are a few guidelines. The planned project must be completed by August 1, 2013. And a narrative summary, story of impact, and any outcome measurements must be provided to the Interact Leaders Club by October 1st.

ForĀ  more information or to download an application, visit the Bangor Y’s website. Applications must be submitted by January 31st, 2013 and award notification will be sent by February 8th. Good luck!
