Cheque will make a difference

WARWICK'S at-risk youth will have more support thanks to the Making A Difference Youth Alliance Community Of Australia (MADYACA) and the Commonwealth Bank.

Nearly $9000 was handed over to MADYACA's Carol Shultz to go towards the Vital Skills Intervention and Research Project, which aims to reduce crime and prevent people aged 16-19 entering the justice system.

The program aims to engage youth through educational courses in literacy, numeracy, sport, life and employment skills.

The $8900 grant was awarded through the Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund Community Grants program which has contributed more than $1 million to children's charities across Australia.

Due to a record number of applications this year, a total of 125 grants of up to $10,000 each were awarded to charities and organisations around Australia by the program.

Since the Community Grants Program started in 2007, more than $3.65 million has been awarded to charities.
