What’s the deal with YOF?
By Katelynn Barnes, Lt. Governor Division 5
The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) is a perfectly named fund. It provides Key Clubs all over the country with opportunities to complete projects they otherwise might not have been able to. You may not know it, but you are actually contributing to the YOF every year! Fifty cents of every key clubber’s dues go into the fund, which provides financial assistance to Key Club International members or clubs requesting money to complete club community service projects. There is only one funding cycle per year, thus it is important that all applications are received by October 15 of each year! Clubs who receive the fund may be rewarded anywhere from $100 to $2000. That service project that seemed just out of reach can be possible thanks to the YOF! If you would like to learn more about this amazing fund or even apply, head on over to keyclub.org.
