RYO Awarded $5,000 My Community My Vision Grant

Thanks to the Town of Versailles, Ripley Youth Outreach (RYO) received a $5,000 My Community My Vision grant to develop and initiate a youth-led project within Ripley County.  Sponsored by IHCDA (Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority), My Community My Vision is a youth community planning program that hopes to encourage teenagers to stay, or return, to their hometowns after college.  The funders of this grant believe that the more involved a person is within their community, the more likely they are to live there.  Past recipients of the grant have completed projects such as community gardens, community crime prevention initiatives, and public art projects.  We are looking forward to seeing what community project RYO comes up with!
