Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund Celebrates 20th Anniversary


The Dryden Youth Opportunity Fund is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. The organization was founded back in 2003, and has surpassed $200,000 in grants awarded to support enrichment programs and activities that help youth in the Dryden area.

DYOF Board President Paul Streeter said, “We made an important and I believe very valuable decision to create an entity that could support youth activities not only in the school district, but also activities for Dryden youth sponsored by any non-profit organization.”

Grants are awarded by the organization in the fall and in the spring with the grants ranging from $500 to $1,500 each. They are supported by donations from individuals and businesses totaling about $10,000.

Streeter, who has led the 15-member volunteer board from the beginning, said “It’s been quite rewarding to be a part of a community-based charity that has helped support opportunities that have enriched in some manner the experiences of what must be a few thousand kids over the past 20 years.”
