Do Something Summer Jobless Grants Program

Posted on June 27, 2011

Do Something Invites Young People to Apply for Summer Jobless Grants Program
Deadline: July 10, 2011

In response to this summer’s high teen unemployment rate, Do Something, a national nonprofit organization that helps young people create and participate in community service projects, is offering a grant program to help young people get involved in or create their own local projects to provide youth with volunteer opportunities in place of jobs.

Summer Jobless Grants can be used to help cover the costs of implementing a youth volunteer project, including food, materials and supplies, event space, and transportation, and include more teens in community action projects. All applicant programs must engage at least twenty-five teens in volunteerism.

The program will provide eight grants of $2,000 and eighteen grants of $500.

Applicants must be 25 years of age or younger and must be a U.S. or Canadian citizen.

Applications are due by July 10, 2011; applicants will be notified whether or not they have won by July 15, 2011.

Visit the Do Something Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
