Please Vote! Native Youth Training Program

$25K Finalists The California Indian Museum & Cultural Center (CIMCC)
is excited to announce that it is a finalist in the running for
a $25,000 grant through the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program.
Our organization would like to use a State Farm Neighborhood
Assist $25,000 grant to help create a social enterprise museum
gift shop and Native Youth Employment Training Program which aims
to help disconnected Native youth enter the workforce and engage
in higher education attainment. Did you know that 40% of Native American
youth don’t graduate from high school and/or underperform academically?
At CIMCC, we hope to change that.
Now, we need the community’s help to bring this grant home to Sonoma County.
From May 14th – June 3rd, the public can vote up to 10 times a day on
Facebook for their favorite cause (there is a quick one-click feature for
all 10 daily votes). The 40 causes that receive the most votes will each win
a $25,000 grant. The nominations and votes will be accepted exclusively
through a free Facebook app.
Please help us get the word out. Every vote gets us closer to bringing this grant home!
Vote through our Facebook page (search \"CIMCC\")
or through the State Farm Facebook App:
