Youth Service America: Afterschool Grants, Deadline Oct. 4

Posted on September 17, 2019

Youth Service America will award Afterschool Grants!  Any afterschool program in the U.S. that engages at least 50 middle & high school students can apply through October 4, 2019.

With generous support from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, YSA will award Afterschool Grants of up to $500 each to support youth-led service or service-learning in afterschool programs. Grants are offered on a competitive application basis and open to any afterschool program that meets the following requirements:

  • Grantees will engage at least 50 youth as volunteers in service or service-learning projects between November 2019 – May 2020;
  • Grantees agree to submit an online impact report by May 31, 2020;
  • Preference will be given to programs that engage a large percentage of youth from underserved communities;
  • Applicants should focus on engaging middle and high-school aged youth;
  • Applicants may work locally, regionally, or statewide.  Afterschool coalitions are encouraged to apply and may be eligible for multiple grants;
  • Applicants must be based in the United States; and
  • Activities can take place any time between November 1 and the end of the 2019-2020 school year. We will provide additional planning resources to grantees for MLK Day of Service (January 20, 2020) and/or Global Youth Service Day (April 14-16, 2020); participation in both of these days is optional.
