YOUTH VENTURE PROGRAM: MICRO-GRANTS AVAILABLE
Socially conscious people between the ages of 12 and 20-years-old are encouraged to apply for micro-grants of up to $1,000 from the YSA Youth Venture Program to create sustainable social ventures. Led by an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer, the YSA Youth Venture Program’s mission is to provide funding and resources to young people to lead socially conscious campaigns that are a lasting asset to their communities. If selected you and your “YSA Youth Venture Team” will be required to plan a Global Youth Service Day project on April 25-27, 2008 (sounds like an awesome Senior Project!). You will also receive resources from Youth Service America and Youth Venture, the leading organizations in the youth service movement.
