The TASC (Teens About Serving the County) Youth Grants Committee meets four times each school year. The TASC Committee includes one 8th grader, one freshman, one sophomore, one junior, and one senior from each of the five school districts in Henry County.
The TASC Committee assignment is to evaluate grant submissions relating to youth and educational programs. The Henry County Community Foundation, Inc. provides the TASC Committee with a budget from the Unrestricted Funds for Community Grants. Youth Grants Chairman, Bill Bergmann, as well as two Foundation board representatives oversee the process and ensure basic parliamentary procedure is followed.
Along with the privilege of serving on the TASC Committee, these students accept the responsibility of critically evaluating each grant submission for purpose, scope, need, and viability. They then determine whether each grant will be accepted as is, partially funded, denied, or accepted with conditions. The TASC Committee grant recommendations are then taken to the Henry County Community Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors for final approval.
