$500 grants to help children address community issues

These grants are for youth (ages 5-14), teachers, or the organizations that engage them, to implement service projects on National and Global Youth Service Day, April 21-23, 2006. Applicants will be expected to develop a service plan that responds to a need in their community. Projects should be age-appropriate and address the concerns, skills, and level of understanding of the youth. The grant program encourages projects where children and youth work together with adults, but projects should be youth-led.
