Objective

Connect - Empower - Include

We BELIEVE our kids are the future. With so much going on in the world today, #GRSUMMERPROJECT is a summer initiative created to empower our kids to not only identify problems, but lead solutions this summer. By connecting our youth with funding, mentors and opportunity to implement the change they want to see in our community.

This summer, Magic 104.9, Grand Rapids Area Schools and our sponsors will ask students to take the #GRSummerProject pledge. Students will share a problem they want to solve & be teamed up with a coach and other students who are passionate about solving the same problem. Each team will be funded $1,049.00 and challenged to spend June 12th thru August 3rd impacting the change they want to see in our community. Teams will share progress with blogs, video and updates via Radio and Social. At the end of the summer, our whole community will be invited to an end of summer concert. There, we will celebrate our students and see the results of the #GRSummerProject.

With the focus on three categories: Community Advocacy, Business and Music.
