About MICHIGAN YOUTH EDUCATION FUND
PO Box 930206, WIXOM, MI 48393, US
The Michigan Youth Education Fund is committed to reducing barriers and costs for Michigan students attending educational events and opportunities through grants and scholarships.
The Michigan Youth Education Fund (MiYEF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on giving K-12 students access to experiential learning outside of the classroom. Our organization believes that a fundamental part of education is learning through different academic experiences. Unfortunately, many students are unable to participate in extracurricular activities due to the financial costs associated with events and travel. Here at the Michigan Youth Education Fund, we are breaking down barriers, so that all students are able to participate in the educational activities that will help to advance learning, inspire change, and promote leadership. We believe in coordinating with school districts, teachers, parents, and students to provide the most for our Michigan students.
