Buck Mountain Central & Queen Elizabeth Schools Receive Grant

We are excited to announce that both Buck Mountain Central School and Queen Elizabeth School were successful in their application for the Strengthening Opportunities for Adolescent Resilience, Inclusion & Growth (SOARING) grant. Both schools will receive $3,400 in 2023 to fund a youth-led project in their school community.
The SOARING pilot project aims to:

  • Increase access and availability of funding for youth-led initiatives to identify and address risk and protective factors that help youth live healthy, safe, and active lives.
  • Support local youth to bring their ideas to life and benefit the community

Youth aged 12+ will be part of engagement sessions to identify an area of interest and come up with a plan to spend the funds. The school and the WRPS Wellness Support Team will support this work and help bring their ideas into action."
