Youth Experience Support (YES) Fund
No student should have to cope without the basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing. Beyond that, positive educational, recreational, and extracurricular activities can make all the difference in the lives of young people. And sometimes helping to relieve even a minor financial barrier can open the door to participation in meaningful activities. The Youth Experience Support Fund is a partnership of Bainbridge Community Foundation, Bainbridge Schools Foundation, Bainbridge Youth Services, and Helpline House. BCF will provide grant funds for students at all Bainbridge public schools. When students, counselors, or administrators identify a student with a need, a quick and confidential application process is all that stands in the way of saying “yes” to kids when they need help.
