Student-Led Grant Making Association

The Children’s Service Council of Palm Beach County (CSC) is increasing their investment in the Glades neighborhoods (Belle Glade and Pahokee) through shared leadership with the Student ACES organization. Through an RFP process, Student ACES youth, known as the Glades Student Grant-Making Association (GSGA) awarded grant dollars to support initiatives designed to improve conditions leading to a healthy, youth-centered community.

GSGA funded 6 organizations for a total of $35,000. The purpose of this Student- led Grant Making Pilot is to provide funding, promote societal healing and transformation by helping to ensure buy-in and accountability for shared goals and strategies within the Glades communities.
