Youth Service America (YSA) supports a global culture of engaged children and youth committed to a lifetime of meaningful service, learning, and leadership. YSA’s Lead Agency Program is intended to activate youth volunteers on September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance, MLK Day of Service weekend, and Global Youth Service Day.
The program provides grants of up to $6,000 to nonprofit organizations who bring together coalitions of youth development and community-based organizations, K-12 schools, colleges and universities, government agencies, national service programs, and faith-based organizations. Through their partner coalitions, Lead Agency grantees will be required to activate a minimum of 1,000 youth for each of the three days of service. Applicants should focus on engaging middle and high school aged youth, especially those from underserved communities. Applications will be reviewed and grantees selected on a rolling basis through August 10.
Award: Up to $6,000
Deadline: August 10
