Clinton High School Youth Empowerment Project receives a YEP of the Ozarks start-up grant in the amount of $500 on March 11th, 2009. YEP programs that partner with CFO receive start-up funds to assist with establishing local community volunteer and grantmaking projects. The Clinton YEP has already begun fundraising projects in partnership with the Clinton Rotary. They look forward to raising funds in Spring 2009 and making their first grant presentations in the 2009-2010 school year!
