Valley Shore Collaborative Grant Awarded
CYFS received a multicultural grant from Valley Shore Collaborative. With the funds we are able to set up a Youth Diversity Club as well as a parent support group for families of multicultural backgrounds. As part of the parent support project, we were able to put funding from the grant aside as well as combine contributions from Clinton Youth & Family Services, Clinton Public Schools and the Henry Carter Hull Library to purchase a lifetime subscription to MANGO, an online language learning system where you can learn 74+ different languages and can learn English from 20 different languages. Any resident of Clinton with a valid Clinton library card can access Mango and download the application onto their devices.
