Student-led Community 101 Club receives $5K from Oregon Community Foundation

The student-led Community 101 Club at Redmond Proficiency Academy (RPA) High School has received $5,000 from the Oregon Community Foundation to grant to local nonprofits.

The Oregon Community Foundation seeks to improve the lives of all Oregonians through the power of philanthropy. They partner with donors to steward their priorities into strategic giving to support diverse communities across Oregon.

In order to determine which non-profits that the club will focus on, they will survey the RPA community over the next week. The club is asking the RPA community to let them know which issues they feel are most pressing in the Redmond/Central Oregon community. Teachers, parents, and students are all encouraged to participate. The survey can be found here

If any students are interested in joining Community 101, the club meets on Fridays at 12 p.m. Check out the weekly Friday Activity list for the Zoom link or contact Ms. Bremont if you have any questions.
