Bright Prospect would like to thank The West End Youth Grantmakers Committee and Reach Out for granting support of $1,500 to Bright Prospect’s Summer Academy.  Reach Out is an organization dedicated to embracing communities, youth, and families to strengthen the bonds that enable all members of the community to grow and thrive. One of their programs, Youth Grantmakers, allows a group of students to participate in learning about the non-profit sector, the role of nonprofits in addressing community needs, and an understanding of how economics have an effect on their delivery of services. This group acts as a committee, reviews grant applications, conducts site visits, and eventually selects grant recipients with adults acting in an advisory role. Find out more at
