The Yarmouth Education Foundation formed in 2010 to maintain and grow the high quality of education in the Yarmouth School Department. Since then, YEF has awarded more than $400,000 across the four schools, making a positive impact on thousands of students.
Attention Yarmouth educators! We know the 2020-2021 school year looks very different, and YEF is here to help. We have developed a streamlined application process to help you with your innovative school and classroom needs during this crisis. Our emergency grant application and more information can be found here.
YEF is pleased to provide additional help to our schools and community during these challenging times. Outside of our traditional grant cycles, YEF donated more than $30,000 to the Yarmouth School Department to start the 2020-2021 school year. We funded several emergency grants, including outdoor classroom space for our entire school community. In addition, when the pandemic first hit in the spring of 2020, YEF immediately jumped into action. We donated $15,000 to ensure all Yarmouth students had technology access and the proper school supplies to help make remote learning a success. The YEF mission is to support innovation in education, and we understand innovation may look differently in the months ahead. We’ll be here to help.
YEF is proud to fund outdoor classroom space for our entire school community. Large tents and awnings have been placed outside all school buildings. We’ve also purchased hemlock tree stumps and folding chairs for seating. These outdoor spaces have allowed for mask breaks, lunch breaks, and an innovative classroom setting for students K-12.
