Youth Grantmakers in Action (YGA) has announced four grants totaling $1,900 to projects that will help the youth of Forsyth County come together to make a difference in our community.

2016 grant recipients:

*Reagan High School Young Black Male Achievers: $250 to provide a scholarship to a senior Young Black Male Achievers member.

*THETA Awards and Scholarship Fund: $1,000 for a high school theatre awards gala and to raise scholarship funds for a theatre summer enrichment program.

*Top Teens of America: $450 to host training sessions on how to handle and report bullying.

*Winston-Salem Youth Advisory Council: $200 to host a public event to pro-mote the acceptance and tolerance of others.

YGA is a diverse group of youth ages 15-18 from all over Forsyth County who want to gain leadership experience, represent the youth of the community, and grant money to youth-led community projects that will have a positive impact on the community.

A program of The Winston-Salem Foundation, YGA was formed in 2005 from the vision of Dr. Nathaniel Irvin and the financial support of Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust. Since its first round of grants was made in 2006, YGA has granted over $19,000 to youth-led community projects.

YGA hosted its annual grant celebration event April 20 in the Mountcastle Forum at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts.
