Corman Announces Grant Funding For Centre County Youth Service Bureau

(HARRISBURG) – Sen. Jake Corman (R-34) today announced that the Centre County Youth Service Bureau will soon be awarded grant funding from the Commonwealth.

Corman announced that the Centre County Youth Service Bureau will receive a $151,200 AmeriCorps grant from PennSERVE, the Governor’s Office of Citizen Service.

Sen. Corman said the Centre County Youth Service Bureau AmeriCorps members will use the grant funding to promote healthy child development and reduce the prevalence of high-risk behaviors and poor outcomes for children, youth, and families in Centre County, by assisting a number of local community agencies with educational monitoring, substance abuse and delinquency prevention, life skills training and service learning activities.

Corman, a former board member of the Community Service Advisory Board, the governing body of PennSERVE, said, “I am very proud to announce this grant funding on behalf of PennSERVE to an entity that I wholeheartedly endorse. The Centre County Youth Service Bureau is a wonderful program with exceptional volunteers who work on the front lines to make Centre County a better place to live and raise a family.”

The Centre County Youth Service Bureau ensures that children, youth, and families will have opportunities to realize and fulfill their potential for growth and development through their participation in a continuum of community-based, family-based, and residential programs.

PennSERVE, the Governor’s Office of Citizen Service, was established by the General Assembly in 1993 and is led by the Community Service Advisory Board, which has oversight and approves grant funding administered by PennSERVE.

Senator Jake Corman, the Senate’s Majority Policy Chairman, represents the 34th Senatorial District, which includes Centre, Mifflin, Juniata, Perry and Union Counties.
