Last year Highlander set up a committee of young people who had participated in youth programs to help lead Seeds of Fire and to decide who will receive funds in a re-granting program started with the support of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The committee will have new members join every year and will also review the grant applications to determine who will receive grants. If you are interested in being part of the Seeds of Fire Advisory Committee for the next year, we are accepting applications by September 15.
Youth groups working for social change from the South or Appalachia can now apply for grants from our program. Grant applications are due on October 15.
