The NCVPS Peer Tutoring Center has been awarded a State Youth Council Mini Grant from the Youth Advisory Council. In an effort to promote youth involvement and leadership, a requirement of this grant is that it be completed and submitted by a youth. James C., Lead Tutor, completed the process for the Peer Tutoring Center. Money from this grant will be used to provide tutors awards through the Presidential Volunteer Service Award Program.
Congrats again to the Peer Tutoring Center and James!
