Youth as Resources (YAR), a program of United Way of Central Indiana, will host three workshops for Hamilton County youth interested in applying for Youth as Resources grants. Over $12,500 is available for the 2015-2016 cycle for Hamilton County youth-led projects. To apply in Hamilton County, youth must attend school or reside in Hamilton County.
