RabunYES was able to fund half of what Forward Rabun requires for its Rabun Youth Leadership program STEM training trip to Atlanta at end of April. The RabunYES Board approved funding of the local Civil Air Patrol squadron to pay for American Red Cross first aid & CPR certification of twelve (12) cadets. This education is part of the squadron's one+ year process in becoming fully certified for search & rescue operations. Our partnership with CAP is just one more in a series of educational collaborations in Rabun County, GA.

On February 21st, the RabunYES Board provided camp scholarship funding for three (3) youth from financially challenged families to attend 4-H Camp this coming summer of 2023. We are impressed with the work done by Rabun County UGA Extension of 4-H and support their mission.

RabunYES will be placing a priority on sending kids to summer camps in summer of 2022. There are a number of groups/camps we are looking to support, such as 4-H, Scouting & YMCA. Many families are having a difficult time paying for summer camp experiences in these inflationary times.
