Through an application process, BBEDC grants $6,000 to each BBEDC community to be used to support and foster jobs, employment activities or learning opportunities for resident young people between the ages of 12-17. The grants result in projects and activities in our communities that impact many young people. The BBEDC Board feels strongly that introducing youth to the workplace can provide a small income as well as a head start on valuable work skills and encourages pride and sense of community responsibility. Applications are accepted year round.
