Community Action - Fresh Start: $30,000

Beloit Fresh Start YouthBuild targets young people ages 16-24 in the City of Beloit who have dropped out of high school or are on the verge of dropping out.

Fresh Start participants typically live in low-income housing in low-income neighborhoods where drugs, alcohol, police interaction and violence regularly occur. The funding will assist in providing transportation to education and employment opportunities and provide funding for educational outings such as campus visits, facility tours and educational venues to expose youth to additional post-secondary educational opportunities as well as new career paths.
