Indian Valley Vocational Center (IVVC) has been awarded two grants by the DeKalb County Community Foundation. 

At a May 2 grant reception in Sycamore, a check in the amount of $2,500 was received from the Youth Engaged in Philanthropy (YEP), a youth-led committee of the DeKalb County Community Foundation. The grant will provide start-up funds for the IVVC Farmer’s Market, which will be held on two Saturdays each month beginning in June. The market will feature fresh vegetables and herbs grown in the school garden by Culinary Arts students. Other vendors will have opportunities to participate.

A $7,000 donation was delivered to IVVC on May 4 by DeKalb County Community Foundation Board Member Dick Underwood of Somonauk. The Community Needs Grant will be used to purchase Chromebooks for Education, which allow students and instructors to utilize Google Classroom to communicate, collaborate and work interactively on projects. The devices will be designated to three IVVC programs: Auto Body Repair, Emergency Medical Technician – Basic (EMT), and Fire Science.

IVVC wishes to express their sincere gratitude to DeKalb County Community Foundation for their support.
