Young WV

Can $250 help you make a difference at your school or in your community? What about $2,000?

Young West Virginia, in partnership with Our Children Our Future Campaign, Peace First, and Families Leading Change are offering just that.

Are you 15 – 25 years old and have a great project or policy idea to engage and create change at your school or in your community? Here are two simple ways to make this happen:

  • Attend WV’s most exciting conference, the 2018 Young WV Power Building Conference, September 14-16, 2018 at Marshall University in Huntington. Register here. You must attend Friday (September 14) to get the $250 mini grant for your project.
  • Join the Our Children Our Future Student Chapter Network. Complete a student chapter application, describe your project and/or policy change and you may be eligible for an additional $2,000 to make it happen this year.

We have scholarships for the conference. They are limited, so register today. Email Jennifer Wells at for a student chapter application or if you have any questions.

Exciting changes are happening in WV. Join the movement!
