Grand Rapids, MI (WOODTV) - Each year high school students from all over Greater Grand Rapids work together on the Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Youth Grant Committee.
They identity needs, review grant applications and make tough decisions about which non-profits to support with over $50,000 dollars in funds.
Students on this Youth Grant Committee also volunteer around the community. They recently planted trees with the organization Friends of Grand Rapids Parks.
