Carmel Youth Groups To Be Awarded Funding for Green Projects

March 27, 2010 - Five Carmel youth groups have an early jump on Earth Day this year, as they receive funding for their local environmental projects. In a ceremony to be held at the City of Carmel Japanese Gardens on Saturday, March 27 at 10 A.M., the youth-driven Carmel Green Teen Micro-Grant Program will be awarding checks to five youth groups to fund their volunteer eco-friendly projects. Mayor Jim Brainard will join them to support them in their commitment to community service and to the environment.

CHS Freshman and Carmel Green Teen youth grant coordinator Lauren Gibson notes, “We continue to receive applications for amazing projects, illustrating how much kids care for the environment.”

Spring 2010 Carmel Green Teen funded projects include:

  • MOSAICS School – Organic Teaching Garden
  • Golden K Kiwanis / Boy Scout Troop 180 – 75 Trees Planted at West Park
  • Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Troop 1166 – Butterfly Conservation at Carey Grove Park
  • Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Troop 1166 – Butterfly Conservation at Clay Middle School Eco-lab
  • Towne Meadow Elementary School / Brownie Den 88 – Disposable Water Bottle Reduction Campaign

Additional youth project applications will be accepted through June 7, 2010. Apply now before funds are exhausted. Details and applications are available at CarmelGreenTeen.org.

The goal of the Carmel Green Teen Micro-Grant Program, funded by Clorox Green Works, is to challenge area youth to use their skills, creativity and energy to help make Carmel / Clay Township in Indiana a greener community by funding youth-inspired environmental projects. This ceremony will mark the second round of micro-grants awarded through this program.

The Carmel Green Teen Micro-Grant Program is administered by a committee of teens from Carmel Area Roots & Shoots (CAR&S) and adults from Carmel Green Initiative, with staff from United Way of Central Indiana’s Youth as Resources providing organizational support. CAR&S, a local youth group of about a dozen Carmel High School students, is one of over 8,000 worldwide Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots groups that encourage youth to make positive changes that demonstrate compassion for people, animals, and the environment.
