The Green Bay Packers are accepting applications for the Jr. Community Quarterback and the Junior Volunteer Stars community grant programs. Both programs are open to Wisconsin residents.

Green Bay Packers Junior Volunteer Stars is a program designed to promote community investment and volunteerism in children (ages 13 and younger) via small-level grants. These small-level grants must be used to finance a community improvement/volunteer project created and executed by the child or children.

This year, eight projects will be selected and each will be awarded a $300 grant in the name of the non-profit organization, school, or religious organization sponsoring the project.

The deadline for Junior Volunteer Stars grant applications is Nov. 20, 2006.


The Green Bay Packers Jr. Community Quarterback Award is designed to honor middle school, high school and college students (ages 13 to 21) who exemplify leadership, dedication, creativity and a commitment to improving the Wisconsin communities in which they live through volunteerism.

The grant will help finance a new project-based service or program. To be eligible for consideration, the project or program must respond to the needs of the community and be sponsored by a non-profit organization. Applicants must have founded or created the project or program and must be responsible for its management and evaluation. Persons who volunteer or participate in projects organized or managed by other individuals or groups are not eligible for consideration.

This year, five projects will be selected and each will be awarded a $1,000 grant in the name of the non-profit organization, school or religious organization sponsoring the project.

The deadline for Jr. Community Quarterback Award grant applications is Nov. 27, 2006.
