Get Busy Livin’ Foundation Announces 2022 Youth Volunteer Awards

The Dylan Meier Get Busy Livin’ (GBL) Foundation has been awarding funds for projects aimed at youth volunteerism as part of the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas (CFSEK) Grant Program since 2016. Forty-two grant awards, up to $500 each and totaling over $22,000, have been awarded for youth volunteerism projects to Southeast Kansas nonprofits.

These projects keep Dylan’s spirit of adventure, fitness, curiosity, generosity, and a daily zest for life experiences alive and thriving. The GBL Foundation “is determined to break down the boundaries that keep people from living life to the fullest, whether those boundaries be social, economic or imaginary.”

2022 GBL Grant Recipients

This year, the GBL Foundation awarded $2,500 in grant funds to six nonprofit organizations across Southeast Kansas. Nonprofits and their youth-volunteer projects receiving funding in 2022 include:

In addition to the youth volunteer grant projects, the GBL Foundation shows its dedication to the community and the GBL mission through an annual event to honor Dylan’s life and spirit, scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors, sponsors volunteer-abroad experiences, and annually recognizes a PHS Dragon and a KPREPS Player of the Year award.
