Castle Foundation Grant - May 14, 2015
This school year (2014-2015) the band decided to apply for the Castle Foundation Grant, a youth-driven leadership project. This endeavor has taken the entire school year, as it had three phases, each led by the band's student officers. 1. Brainstorming, the application process, grant writing & acceptance. 2. Recruiting and executing 500 hours of community service. 3. Documenting the final report by scripting and producing a web video.
The final outcomes: an appreciation for native Hawaiian plants vs invasive species in the Windward community, strengthened friendships, and the feeling of success in accomplishing their goals and raising $5,000 for the KIS Band program. Congratulations! And thank you to all the band's supporters.
