Youth Service America Offers Youth Venture Funding
Deadline: July 24, 2006

Through partial funding from the US Department of Justice, Youth Service America and Youth Venture, Inc. are teaming up again to make every day National & Global Youth Service Day (<a href=""></a>). The program is giving young people the opportunity to create sustainable National Youth Service Day projects for N&GYSD 2007, April 20-22. YSA and Youth Venture are offering funding to enable young people to engage in community service and make a difference in their world. Thirty awards of up to $1,000 in start-up funds will be available to young people (ages 12-20) who want to create new, sustainable, and civic-minded organizations, clubs, or businesses ("ventures"). These ventures must be youth-led and designed to be a lasting asset to the community. YSA Youth Venture teams are required to plan a N&GYSD project every year that their venture is operational. For complete program information, visit the YSA Web site.
