This spring, YES Academy youth were granted $5,000 from The Highland Street Foundation to award to three local non-profits. After conducting site visits at a handful of local non-profits , the YES Academy youth voted on which three non-profits should receive the grant money. The three non-profits selected by YES Academy were the Sunny Meadow Sanctuary, The Children’s Trust, and The Environmental League of Massachusetts.
