Youth development models enhance positive outcomes for all youth. Youth Service America and the U.S. Department of Justice are offering grants for organizations to engage high-risk and/or gang-involved youth in service. The goal of this initiative is to design and implement appropriate and creative service projects that engage such youth in service and develop their capacity for leadership and civic engagement. A significant component of the service should occur on National Youth Service Day, April 20-22, 2007.
