April, 2017, the Friends of the Mentor Program/Lake County Youth Mentor Program received word from Pacific Power that they would be receiving funds for the 2017 year in the amount of $1,000 to support the program in Lakeview, Paisley and North Lake for at-risk youth grades K-12. This is the first year the program has received funding from Pacific Power and very excited for this newly formed relationship. Thank you Pacific Power!
Oregon Community Foundation
The Lake County Youth Mentor Program would like to thank the Oregon Community Foundation for their support over the past seven years. As of May, 2017, the Oregon Community Foundation informed the Lake County Youth Mentor Program that we would be receiving a grant in the amount of $10,000. The funds will be used for one year to support the mentoring for at-risk youth through one-on-one and team mentoring programs in Lake County. The program is entirely funded by grants and fundraising so we are more than appreciative to the OCF board of directors for this opportunity to continue serving the youth in Lake County. Thank you OCF!
The Collins Foundation
June, 2017, the Lake County Youth Mentor Program was granted $15,000 from the Collins Foundation. This is the final payment of a $35,000 multi-year grant authorized by the Foundation on June 8, 2016. The program is very excited to have had the opportunity to work with The Collins Foundation these past two years and look forward to the opportunity to work together again. Thank you Collins Foundation!
