Grants of up to $2,500 to Northeast Michigan nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies to improve the lives of local youth. Programs and projects must serve youth residing in Alpena, Alcona, Presque Isle, or Montmorency counties. Proposals seeking "seed money" for projects that are new, dynamic, and that show funding support from additional organizations are given stronger consideration.

The NEMYAC uses the top ten issues identified on the NEMYAC youth needs assessment to assist them in determining grant awards. Half of the available funding will be allocated to programs or projects that address area youth needs as determined by the needs assessment survey. An assessment is completed every three years.

Top Ten Issues:
1. Bullying
2. Teen Drug Use
3. Smoking/Tobacco Use
4. Cyber Bullying
5. Underage Alcohol Use
6. Depression/Mental Health Issues
7. Self Esteem Issues
8. Lack of Things to Do Locally
9. Body Image/Appearance Issues
10. Teen Suicide

The Northeast Michigan Youth Advisory Council (NEMYAC) is a group of about 50 students, and seven YAC advisors, from the counties of Alcona, Alpena, Montmorency, and Presque Isle. NEMYAC members learn about philanthropy and how to improve their communities through the grant-making process. Permanently endowed funds from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation allow the students to award approximately $50,000 each year to local non-profit organizations for youth related programs and projects.
