Grants support local STEM programming, Youth Wellness Hub

Huronia Community Foundation handed out three grants recently

Through a generous grant from the Paul Fahey Endowment Fund at the Huronia Community Foundation, north Simcoe students and teachers will be able to access virtual STEM workshops free of charge through Scientists in School this fall.

The workshops bring fun and relevant investigations that build critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills for students and have proven to be very successful with teachers and students alike.

Through a Smart and Caring grant provided by the John and Jan MacIntyre Community Fund and the Tom and Lucille Gay Memorial Fund at the Huronia Community Foundation, Scientists in School will once again be able to provide complimentary STEM workshops to children and youth across north Simcoe. The workshops focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The North Simcoe Youth Wellness Hub, which offers a wide range of services to youth ages 12 to 25 at the right time and in the right place, has received a generous grant of $1,000 from the Bimbombay Memorial Fund at the Huronia Community Foundation. The fund was established by Jane Courtemanche in memory of her son, Duncan.

The annual grant is used to support local programs that provide much-needed support for youth in our area struggling with mental health issues.
