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 environmental programs.

Green Grant Youth Council Staff:

Darlene Johnson Morris - Program Director

Ashley Look - Staff Advisor

The Green Grant Youth Council was designed, developed and is operated by the Barnstable County Resource Development Office.
