Youth Leadership receives grant

November 7, 2003

Ray City - The Albany Easter Seals is helping South Georgia children learn the importance of their role in city government.

The Ray City Mayor's Youth Leadership Institute received a $2,000.00 grant from the Easter Seals Foundation. The program teaches kids the value of staying in school, staying off drugs, and getting involved in their community.

Mayor Carl Camon started the group, and says they depend on donations like this to keep thriving. "We are not city funded, so we rely on donations from people around the state to keep the program up," said Camon.

The Mayor's Youth Leadership Institute has about 15 members between the ages of eight and 17.
