2021 Fall Semester of Service Grants – Jul 9

Posted by Youth Service America on May 25, 2021

Youth Service America (YSA) will award Fall Semester of Service Grants of $1,000 – $5,000 each to support K-12 educators to engage their students in semester-long service-learning activities within their classrooms or afterschool programs. Grants are offered on a competitive application basis and open to any public, private, or charter K-12 school in the United States.

Grantees will use YSA’s Semester of Service framework (Semester of Service Toolkit and accompanying resources available below) to engage their students in service or service-learning projects lasting at least 10-14 weeks (and approximately 70 hours) during the fall 2021 semester. Semester of Service activities must begin on or around 9/11 Day of Service and continue throughout the fall semester. 9/11 Day activities should also engage students in learning about and reflecting on the meaning of 9/11 Day. Title I schools are especially encouraged to apply.

The application deadline is Friday, July 9. We expect to notify all applicants of their status by July 30.
