Grants of $500 to young adults ages 5-25 worldwide who partner with schools or organizations to develop innovative youth-led projects that address demonstrated community needs or issues. The purpose of these grants is to provide project support and necessary funding to young people who are working to do great things for their communities. Applicants must have a Project Mentor to help throughout the project and applicants under 18 must have their parent/guardian’s permission. Projects must take place during the months of June, July, and/or August 2012.
Youth Service America will provide funding to support:
* Recognition items (such as t-shirts, certificates, plaques) and snacks/refreshments, but should not cost more than USD $200.
* Things you need to complete your service (art supplies, seeds to plant, baskets to transport meals for hungry people, etc.);
* Local transportation for youth doing service;
* Postage, copying, and printing directly related to your project.
Expenses that YSA cannot fund include:
* Expensive equipment that will be used only once, such as a GPS. If the equipment will be used many times in the future, please explain so in your budget;
* Direct payments to people, like hiring a DJ or paying someone to speak at or attend your event;
* Anything called “miscellaneous expenses” that you do not fully explain;
* Long-range expenses NOT directly related to the proposed project.
Estimated Size of Grant:
Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS

YSA requires all applicants to be associated with a partner organization or school, who will accept the grant funds for you. YSA cannot send grant funds to an individual. If you do not complete this section – or if you enter only an individual’s information – your application will not be accepted (if time permits it will be returned to you).
The project mentor can be anyone who is interested in helping you with your project – for example, a teacher, a coach, a youth leader, etc. working with the school or youth organization.
