AT&T CARES Youth Service Action Fund Offers Grants for National Youth Service Day

Deadline: February 13, 2004

Youth Service America (<a href=""></a>) and AT&T have partnered to present the AT&T CARES Youth Service Action Fund, which will provide support to young people as they improve their communities through service on National Youth Service Day, April 16-18, 2004.

National Youth Service Day, a program of Youth Service America, is designed to mobilize youth as leaders to identify and address the needs of their communities through service and service learning; support youth on a lifelong path of service and civic engagement; and educate the public, the media, and policymakers about the year-round contributions of young people as community leaders.

Fifty grants of $500 each are available to young people (ages 5-25) and organizations to implement service projects for National Youth Service Day. Grant applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements: be an organization (public, private, or nonprofit), or be a youth between the ages of 5-25 and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Guidelines and application forms as well as information on National Youth Service Day are available at the Youth Service America Web site.
