Members of the Cherokee Youth Council represented the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the Seven Clans Grant Council (SCGC)at the 2012 North Carolina Youth Giving Summit held Saturday, Oct. 13 in Winston-Salem.  The Cherokee Youth Council is the only tribal youth grant makers in North Carolina.  This Summit helped SCGC come together with other youth grant makers around the state.

“We are very proud to give back in any way we can and granting out money to our community youth is very important to us,” said Sky Kanott, Cherokee Youth Council program manager.

SCGC was created to promote funds for community issues such as drug and alcohol prevention, suicide prevention, abuse prevention, illness and disease prevention and poverty decrease.
