Youth Development


2022 STEAM Team


Ginger Littleton Youth Development Fund

Gayle Littleton wanted to honor her mother, Ginger Littleton for her many years of service to the youth in our community.  She pledged $10,000 to start the Ginger Littleton Youth Foundation under the leadership of LEAD Coalition.  Since that time, LEAD has received additional donations and support for the Youth Fund bringing the total over $25,000.  Our goal is to give deserving students an opportunity to attend programs throughout the summer for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math, at no cost to the students. The program has been christened “STEAM Team,” and our first group of students will be selected to attend classes this summer.

If you know of a deserving student – please help her or him to apply to our program.  Interested students must have an adult sponsor, someone other than a parent who knows the student well and can acknowledge the student’s work ethic, commitment, and integrity.  Also, the student must tell us why they want to join STEAM Team. The Student Application, Sponsor Form, and project, Why I want to join STEAM Team, must be submitted by April 1, 2022.

Our informational brochure and links to the Student Application and Sponsor Form are listed below.  If you have any questions, please contact LEAD at 850-640-2028.
