Happy Monday! Today’s Grantee Monday highlight is about one of our 2019 education grantees, Red Wing Youth Outreach! Open Your Heart provided Red Wing Youth Outreach with funding for transportation assistance and academic support to help eliminate barriers to high school graduation and college enrollment for youth experiencing homelessness in Goodhue and Wabasha counties.
The mission of Red Wing Youth Outreach is to provide intervention, life skills education, and mentoring for adolescents at risk of not graduating and facing serious challenges in their transition to healthy adulthood. They currently serve approximately 200 youth per year throughout Goodhue and Wabasha counties. Thank you Red Wing Youth Outreach for all that you do for youth experiencing homelessness!
