YSA is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Lead Agency program to activate youth volunteers on September 11th National Day of Service & Remembrance, MLK Day of Service weekend, and Global Youth Service Day! Funded by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Lead Agency Program offers youth development organizations, community-based organizations, and schools/school districts grant funding, capacity-building training, and ongoing partnership support to effectively recruit and engage young people in meaningful service activities.
For the 2018-2019 program, YSA is offering 25 grants of up to $6,000. Through their partner coalitions, Lead Agency grantees will be required to activate a minimum of 1,000 youth for each of three days of service (9/11 Day, MLK Day, and GYSD). Applicants should focus on engaging middle and high-school aged youth, especially those from underserved communities. Applications will be reviewed and grantees selected on a rolling basis through Friday, August 10, so apply as soon as possible at YSA.org/Lead
