On Thursday, January 29th, HMEA’s Children’s Services Division which provides ABA home and school programs as well as school-to-work transition programs, was awarded a $5,000 grant by Foundation for Metrowest – Youth in Philanthropy program. The grant will be used for evaluation tool kits program supplies and materials to help better evaluate and assess youth on the spectrum in the preparation and design of individualized programs and services. In addition, some of the funds will be used to purchase a few iPads as tools for services and assessment as well.
Foundation for Metrowest – Youth in Philanthropy Program:
The Youth in Philanthropy program (YIP) helps MetroWest students develop the knowledge and skills to become community leaders. Throughout the program, students learn the importance of the nonprofit sector and giving back to their own community. Participants form their own Board of Trustees and have the opportunity to run for leadership positions, fundraise for the program, visit local organizations, and distribute grants. Learn more
