Literacy Education/Youth Leadership Grant
2003 LITERACY EDUCATION/YOUTH LEADERSHIP GRANT
$500 – $2,000 Funded by Bridgestone/Firestone Trust Fund and Firestone Agricultural Tire Company
Youth need safe and inviting places to enrich their basic skills outside of school — places that are abundant with positive adult influences where they can enhance their knowledge of the academic world and beyond. With this in mind, National 4-H Council encourages applicants for the Literacy Education/Youth Leadership Grant to create literacy programming in after-school settings.
This National 4-H Youth Grants Program will provide community action grants in the amounts of $500 to $2,000 to stimulate literacy education nationwide. Grants will be awarded for after-school, out-of-school, and in-school programs in support of ongoing literacy education or to stimulate new and creative youth-led literacy education programs. (Although grants will be awarded primarily for programs in after-school settings, other types of programs are encouraged to apply.)
The application deadline is Tuesday April 29, 2003. The complete announcement and application are available at http://www.grants.n4h.org under “Literacy.”
