Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant

Posted by Youth Service America on July 10, 2017

YSA and The Walt Disney Company are working together this summer to inspire kids and families to make a positive impact in their communities through the Disney Summer of Service campaign.

Youth can use fun summer activities – like sports, arts, reading, and being outdoors – to join Disney in a movement to make the world healthier, greener, and stronger. Kids who volunteer – with their friends or family, or on their own – can apply for a $500 Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant to create a project or expand an existing project throughout the rest of the year.

Youth, ages 5-18, in the U.S. can visit http://YSA.org/BeInspired to tell their volunteer story, get inspiration and planning resources, and apply for a Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant. 250 youth-led service projects will be selected to receive a $500 grant that will be awarded to each sponsoring organization in support of that project. Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2017, and select grantees may have a chance to be recognized by Disney|ABC Television Group or their local ABC affiliate.
