Dollars for Change Grants

Youth Service America’s (YSA), YSA’s National Youth Council (NYC) and State Farm Companies Foundation are excited to offer Dollars for Change Grants, as part of the Global Youth Service Grants.

NYC will select the grantees: youth ages 12-25 who will collaborate with a teacher or service-learning coordinator. The awards are up to $2,000, and will support high-impact, semester-long service-learning projects. The selected youth-led projects will engage a minimum of 100 young people in service, demonstrate Youth Voice and youth leadership in all aspects of the decision-making process, and address compelling issues across the United States and the Canada. Upon successful completion of projects and evaluations, grantees will become eligible to compete for the prestigious Harris Wofford Youth Award in 2010, and be recognized as a YSA Service Star.
