The American Lung Association in West Virginia is looking for new adult advisors for Raze, which is the West Virginia Youth Tobacco Prevention Movement. This is a great way to get teens involved in a positive community activity.
If you work with or volunteer with West Virginia teens in the 6th through 12th grades, there are still several $500 Raze Grants available. Schools and community youth groups such as churches, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H are welcome.
The requirements to run a Raze movement are that you must have five members between the age of 11-18 and register commotions on the Raze website. Commotions are anti-tobacco activities and there are several examples to choose from listed on the website at www.razewv.com.
Once a Raze application is approved the organization will receive a $500 grant to run the movement and the adult advisor will also receive stipends for themselves once certain qualifications are met. Stipends are awarded twice a year for a total of $550. Travel reimbursements are also available for Raze events.
A grant application for Raze can be found on the Raze website at: https://www.razewv.com/join/adult-advisor.
