Get ready to apply for a delta dental mini grant.
The deadline is January 21, 2016
Mini grants allow youth some resources to do a service project.
Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation focuses its community investment efforts on programs that promote the health (particularly oral health) of individuals, families and communities. The Serve a Smile program empowers youth in helping to create happy and healthy smiles through service in their own schools and communities. There is an ongoing need in our state to better address community health issues. Serve a Smile, in conjunction with Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) and our collaborating partners Minnesota Alliance With Youth and the Minnesota chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), offers youth from across Minnesota the chance to develop a service project that makes a healthy difference in the places they live and learn.
Application is an online application on the MN Alliance with Youth Website.
