YSA Lead Agencies for Days of Service
YSA is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Lead Agency program to activate youth volunteers on September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance, MLK Day of Service weekend, and Global Youth Service Day!
For the 2018-2019 program, YSA is offering grants of up to $6,000. Through their partner coalitions, Lead Agency grantees will be required to activate a minimum of 1,000 youth for each of three days of service (9/11 Day, MLK Day, and GYSD). Applicants should focus on engaging middle and high-school aged youth, especially those from underserved communities. Applicants may work locally, regionally, or statewide, and must be based in the United States.
Grantees are required to coordinate at least one project focused on veterans or military families for 9/11 Day, and at least one project focused on economic opportunity and financial literacy for MLK Day. Grantees are also required to record and report names of all volunteers for each day of service.
Applications will be reviewed and grantees selected on a rolling basis through Friday, August 10, so apply as soon as possible.
