Youth Leaders for Literacy is an initiative of the NEA and YSA to help youth direct their enthusiasm and creativity into reading-related service projects. Its organizers hope to create a groundswell of literacy service in communities across the country. Grant applications should propose youth leadership in developing and implementing a literacy project that begins on NEA’s Read Across America Day (March 2, 2006) and culminates on YSA’s National Youth Service Days (April 21-23, 2006).
