Southern Poverty Law Center Offers Youth Grants to Promote Tolerance

Deadline: Open – ( and Teaching Tolerance, educational programs of the Southern Poverty Law Center (, have joined with the Study Circles Resource Center to launch the second phase of the national “Mix It Up” youth campaign. Launched last November, the “Mix it Up” campaign is designed to help young people understand and address the issue of social boundaries in their schools and communities. The campaign will continue in Spring 2003 with a series of activities, including a grants program for young people. The Spring 2003 Mix It Up Grants Program will fund youth-directed activist projects that focus on identifying, crossing, and challenging social boundaries in schools and communities. Non-renewable grants of $250 will be awarded to the winning project. Proposed projects should demonstrate youth leadership (i.e., projects envisioned and implemented by youth activists); involve collaborative efforts across social boundaries (i.e., different youth groups or clubs working
together, or school-based clubs working with community-based organizations); and be part of continuing efforts to identify, cross, or challenge social boundaries. See the Mix It Up Web site for complete application guidelines and for further information on the program’s components.
