Youth Leadership

In 2008 the Cool Jazz Clean Water project expanded recipients from an International Water Project, and an Instrument donation program to Thurston County Schools, to include a Youth Leadership component.

The first recipient was Boys and Girl Scout programs in Thurston County. In 2009 focus changed to an annual Youth Leadership Summit, provided for the local youth servings non-profits which yields enormous benefits in training staff and volunteers to better serve kids and their organizations. In its third year, over $7500.00 has been given to this effort.
