The mission of Youth Service America (YSA) is to help young people find their voice, take action, and make an impact on vital community issues. YSA’s Summer of Creativity Grants support youth-led projects throughout the country that highlight the creativity and commitment of young people working to meet the needs of others. Grants of $500 are provided to young change-makers who are working to make their communities greener, safer, smarter, healthier, cleaner, or fairer.
Grant applicants must be between the ages of five and 18, and have a sponsoring organization or school. The application deadline is August 10. For more information, visit http://www.ysa.org/beinspired.
