Española Teen Center receives grant
Española teens received a boost for pursuing positive opportunities in December as The Frost Foundation, Ltd., located in Santa Fe, awarded a grant of $10,000 to the Española YMCA Teen Center.
“We’re proud that The Frost Foundation recognizes the importance of investing in others, and that they consider our work in the Rio Grande Valley worthy of their support,” said Y Executive Director Linda Daly. “We served 700 kids there last year, mentoring anywhere from 41 to 80 on a daily basis.”
“The Y’s work is making a tremendous difference. On a daily basis, we see changes in the kids. Parents and the community have taken notice, too,” Center Director Ben Sandoval said.
Sandoval noted that in 2013 the Chamber of Commerce awarded the center its President’s Award, which named the Y as the Nonprofit of the Year. “The Frost grant will help this good work to continue,” Sandoval said.
The funds will be used to support tutoring, life-skill education programs, mentoring, prevention, cultural arts programs and operating costs. The Teen Center collaborates with more than 40 partners in Española in support of teens.
