As part of a nationwide initiative to support programs that benefit middle school youths, Camp Fire Central Coast of California has received a New York Life Foundation grant.

The organization is one of 10 to be chosen across the country. The new three-year investment of $1,250,000 from the foundation will provide two youth development programs:

InterACTION, which focuses on healthy choices and communication skills; and Teens in Action, which connects participants with local nonprofits to build their own community service project.

“We are honored to be selected by Camp Fire national headquarters to participate in this groundbreaking program,” said Ken Miles, executive director of Camp Fire Central Coast of California.
