Community Service Grant Enabled At-Risk Students to Attend Summer Camp
The Council was proud to underwrite its second annual Alumni Community Service Grant in spring 2019. Each year, high school alumni are invited to submit an application that describes a community service project or non-profit organization they wish to benefit. The winner receives a $500 grant to support their service effort.
The winner of the 2019 grant was Ben Jacoby (Curtis '16, Harvard-Westlake '22). Ben volunteers for Harlem Lacrosse Los Angeles, a sports-based development program that helps at-risk students reach their full personal potential by being "immersed in an activity they take pride in, led by a caring mentor, tutor and coach who can help them build confidence and skill sets on the field and in the classroom" (www.harlemlacrosse.org). The grant enabled 25 kids to attend the organization's summer camp.
