BCT Youth Division

Building Community Together (BCT) is a philanthropic youth board whose purpose is to raise funds and return them to the community in the form of youth service grants.


If you are looking for a rewarding way to become active in the community, learn how boards work and dedicate time and energy to administer funds for youth-led designed projects throughout our community, then BCT may be for you!

The Building Community Together (BCT) initiative began in 2001 when the Ohio State University Extension, 4-H Youth Development entered into a multi-state project focused on developing and sustaining youth and adult partnerships in local communities by addressing relevant needs and issues important to these groups.


If you are in grades 8-12 and live in or are affiliated with Sandusky County (i.e. school, work, church) we encourage you to apply for membership in BCT.
