Youth Service America Launches Dollars for Change Grant Program
Deadline: April 30, 2009

Youth Service America, the YSA National Youth Council, and State Farm have announced that they are offering five grants of up to $2,000 each to individual youth or teams of youth (ages 12-25) to plan and implement semester-long service-learning projects with a service-learning coordinator or educator.

The goal of the Dollars for Change initiative is to support high-impact semester-long projects. Selected projects will be youth-led, engage at least one hundred youth volunteers (ages 5-25), and demonstrate youth voice and leadership in all aspects of the decision-making process. Upon successful completion of projects and evaluations, grantees will become eligible to compete for the Harris Wofford Youth Award in 2010 and be recognized as a YSA Service Star.
