Jean Hsu 2015 YOF GRANT RECIEPIENT
Being able to apply for the YOF Grant was such an amazing experience. Just knowing that Key Club International was there to support me financially to create my own service project to make change was a wondering feeling. I'm so glad that this grant is out there because without it, I wouldn't have been able to create such an impactful event for the homeless in my community!

FOUNTAIN VALLEY KIWIN'S 2015 YOF Grant Reciepients
Organizing and implementing our own YOF project was a great experience and I do hope that we can do it again
this term or do a similar one like the PTP Grant. FV was able to receive a $400 grant for Key Club International to implement our project, where we packaged 200 bags with various types of school supplies. We are currently super close to finalizing this project and all we have left is to deliver the packages to the underprivileged children at KidsWork!” -Carol Wann FVHS KIWIN’S President
