Posted by Youth Service America on September 26, 2023

We are excited to share that Youth Service America (YSA) is designing a new, nationwide AmeriCorps State and National program focused on expanding opportunities for, and reducing barriers to, youth service and leadership.

Are you interested in creating a youth council? Better integrating youth voice into programming? Expanding opportunities for youth community engagement and service? We encourage you to apply!

Our site partnership application is now open.

Priority Deadline: Friday, October 13, 2023

Final Deadline: Wednesday, November 1, 2023

About the Program

Successful applicants are schools, government agencies, or non-profit organizations with 501(c)3 status that plan to create or expand opportunities for youth leaders to engage their peers in service, civics, and other forms of community engagement. These partnering organizations will serve as a physical host organization for an AmeriCorps State and National member.

AmeriCorps members will engage, train, and support youth leaders in investigating their communities and identifying community challenges or barriers to youth participation. These youth leaders, in turn, will design community solutions and recruit their peers to enact them.

This program is contingent upon the approval of our grant application and funding by AmeriCorps. An initial acceptance of your proposal is not a guarantee that an AmeriCorps member will begin service with your organization.
