Beginning today the North Carolina Department of Administration's Council for Women & Youth Involvement will accept applications from organizations that build character and leadership skills among North Carolina youth through peer-to-peer community projects. The application deadline is Sept. 30.

    "The mini grant program fuels creativity and innovation among our youth while nurturing their interest in public service," said Department of Administration Secretary Pamela B. Cashwell. "These grant funded projects are all inspired by our youth, who are looking for ways to serve their peers and help their local communities."
