NEA Youth Leaders for Literacy Grants

The National Education Association will award 20 grants of $500 each to student-led initiatives through Youth Leaders for Literacy, a joint program of the NEA and Youth Service America (YSA). The program encourages and celebrates literacy service by America’s young people (ages 5-21) and honors them for doing reading-related activities that benefit others. Grant applications should propose youth leadership in developing and implementing a project that begins on NEA’s Read Across America Day in March and culminates on YSA’s National Youth Service Day in April. Winners will be announced in December 2004. Anyone under 21 is eligible to apply, either individually or in groups. Application Deadline:
