Muskingum County high school students are needed for a local service organization.

It’s enrollment time for the Community Youth Foundation. It’s part of the Muskingum County Community Foundation and is a grant writing and community service group that aims to improve the area through volunteerism.

"Every year we do the membership drive said CYF Advisor, Juliet Lacy. We are looking primarily for freshman and sophomores because we like for the students to serve all four years of high school on the Community Youth Foundation."

Currently there are 34 members from all seven high schools in Muskingum County participating in the organization. Lacy says applying is simple.

"It’s a three page application that we ask students to fill out," said Lacy. It does involve a short essay, also they are required to get two references from an adult could be a teacher or a coach."

Deadline to apply is Friday, September 20th at 5 p.m. All interested students are advised to make sure all areas of the application are completed before sending in their information. If you have any questions feel free to contact the Muskingum County Community Foundation by phone at 740-453-5192 or in person at 534 Putnam Avenue.
