Hershey Heartwarming Young Heroes Grants – Mar 10

Posted by Youth Service America on January 30, 2024

In partnership with The Hershey Company and Hershey’s Heartwarming Project, YSA will award Hershey Heartwarming Young Heroes Youth Grants for Youth Service Month & Global Youth Service Day 2024 projects. Youth changemakers – aged 5 to 25 – in the U.S. and Canada are eligible to apply for these grants to lead awareness, service, advocacy, and philanthropy projects in their communities.

This year, youth may apply for grants of either $250 or $500 depending on the number of youth who will be participating as volunteers (project planners, project leaders, and day-of volunteers). $250 grantees will be required to engage at least 25 other youth as volunteers while $500 grantees have a 50-youth volunteer minimum requirement. A total of $50,000 in grants will be awarded.

New for 2024: Projects may address any issue or community need that is important to the youth project leaders and their peers. All proposed projects should engage a diverse group of youth volunteers from different social backgrounds and provide opportunities for those youth volunteers to create meaningful connections with their peers, caring adults, and community partners, while developing social awareness and relationship skills.

Application Deadline: March 10, 2024
