Community 101 (C101)

Community 101 is a classroom-based program that encourages students to get involved in their communities through grantmaking and volunteering. 

A C101 class acts as a mini-foundation. The students receive grantmaking funds, work to identify community needs, decide where to focus, and then implement a grant program. As part of the program, students must volunteer two to five hours per month at a local nonprofit, which brings them even closer to community issues.

Many C101 classes are supported by local businesses and donors. This initiative also receives major support from the PGE Foundation

For more information on involving your school in C101, or to support a high school in your community, please visit Community 101 or contact:
