St. Louis (December 19, 2007)---The National Conference for Community and Justice of Metropolitan St. Louis (NCCJSTL) announced today it received a $20,000 grant from the Joseph H. & Florence A. Roblee Foundation for their Anytown Youth Leadership Institute.
The Roblee Foundation focuses on education, family support issues, youth development, and community. Their efforts seek to address significant social issues, improve people's quality of life and help to fulfill their potential. Funding for NCCJSTL's Anytown will be used to provide scholarships to youths who would otherwise not benefit from this amazing experience.
The Anytown Youth Leadership Institute is an eight-day residential program that prepares youth to become effective leaders and agents of change in building inclusion and promoting understanding and respect among diverse schools and social groups. The experience challenges and prepares youth to make meaningful and informed decisions affecting their futures, as well as the futures of their organizations and communities.
