The Cluthe and William B. Oliver Foundation
Grants of $500 and in-kind support to Texas nonprofit organizations, agencies, and schools to assemble youth nutrition advisory boards on middle and high school campuses. The purpose of these grants is to promote healthy choices, mentor younger students, and foster a healthy campus environment. A school sponsor is required to oversee this group of students and submit the grant application.
The initial Teen Advisory Board (TB) will be a body of diverse students that value health and fitness and are leaders on their campus and in the community. It is recommended that the initial TB be no more than eight to ten students, aged 13 to 18.
The initial group of students must maintain acceptable scholastic reports (GPA to be determined by campus guidelines), be free of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and be role models for children. Initial members can volunteer for membership or be recommended by the administration or campus staff. These students will apply to be a member of the TB and go through the interview process.
More information about the interview process project selection criteria can be seen on the Full-Text link below.
The Oliver Foundation and members of the Oliver Foundation Teen Advisory Board will provide training and resources to assist in implementing and sustaining this grant.
TB members will:
- Meet a minimum of once a month
- Advocate for healthy changes on their campus
- Mentor younger students (Elementary and Middle School students in feeder pattern schools)
- Perform community service events 2-3 times per school year
