We believe all kids, regardless of their circumstances deserve to have a great start in life, do well in school and reach their potential,” says Michael Cullen, Executive Director with UWCNEO. “The WOLVES United – United FIVE partnership helps to ensure that local youth have opportunities, safe places and spaces, and accessible programs that help them develop into young adults.”

Qualifying charities working to support youth and/or youth mental health initiatives (capital, subsidies, projects) are invited to submit their completed application by March 25, 2019. Funding requests up to $5,000 will be reviewed and considered.
