What is the Green Grant Youth Council?
The Green Grant Youth Council of Cape Cod is a select group of dedicated teen philanthropists,
ages 12-17, whose purpose is to fund and support various environmental projects that protect
and conserve the fragile environment of Barnstable County.
The Green Grant Youth Council is an opportunity for students to make a lasting difference in
their communities. Council members learn about philanthropy and grant making, leadership,
environmental stewardship, team building, mentoring, service learning, and public speaking.
The council maintains involvement in all aspects of the grant process. Youth members are responsible
for developing grant selection criteria, releasing a Request for Proposal (RFP), reviewing proposals
and deciding which environmental projects will receive a mini-grant.
As part of their service learning, Green Grant Youth Members also participate in state-wide
