The Clay-Union Foundation has had a busy few months, adding 3 new board members, 2 new matches and continuing efforts to match youth in the two counties. The program would like to add 2 adult volunteers to serve as board members from Clay County, and also is seeking 3 students from the USD law school or communications departments to help provide input on programs , future projects and needs.  USD student reps would ideally be sophomore status, so they have time to grow with the program and contribute to its board.­    The foundation will start its 17th year as a non- profit youth mentoring program, and is seeking to create new matches throughout the two counties. It is supported by donations from businesses, individuals and organizations, and in part, by the United Way of Vermillion.  Please contact John Gille at 605-421-5050, or email jgillerrsd60@yahoo.com , or visit their website www.clay-unionfoundation.org, to be involved in the program.
