Now is the time for Yolo County’s teenagers to apply for Yolo Youth Service Awards, presented annually by the Yolo Community Foundation. Applications are available online at www.yolocf.org and www.sacregcf.org and are due April 11. The awards will be announced by May 2, and honorees will be recognized at a reception hosted by Yolo Community Foundation in May.
The YoYoSA program is designed to promote and reward Yolo County youths who volunteer with local nonprofit organizations, and encourages Yolo County nonprofits to engage with youth volunteers.
The foundation seeks applications from high school seniors who have volunteered with a recognized Yolo County nonprofit at least 60 hours during their junior and/or senior years of high school. YoYoSA student honorees will receive a $1,000 scholarship to support post-high school education, which may include college, vocational or technical school. A $500 grant will be awarded to the nonprofit agency sponsoring each YoYoSA student scholarship winner.
