Youth Service America Invites Applications for National & Global Youth Service Day Lead Agencies

Youth Service America (www.ysa.org) invites applications from organizations interested in serving as Lead Agencies for National & Global Youth Service Day 2007, April 20-22 (www.ysa.org/nysd). Lead Agencies are organizations across the United States that increase the scope, visibility, and sustainability of National & Global Youth Service Day by leading city, regional, or statewide service projects. Past Lead Agencies have been successful in garnering national media attention, developing new partnerships, and engaging elected and public officials in their service and service-learning projects. Lead Agencies receive a $2,000 N&GYSD planning grant sponsored by State Farm Companies Foundation and direct assistance and support from Youth Service America to ensure a successful National & Global Youth Service Day. In order to be eligible as a Lead Agency, an applicant must demonstrate organizational capacity to fulfill the responsibilities of a Lead Agency; ability to engage a variety of community groups; ability to plan to mobilize a citywide, regional, or statewide National & Global Youth Service Day celebration involving over five hundred youth volunteers in service; and ability to respond to quick-deadline press opportunities. For complete program information and an application form, visit the YSA Web site. The deadline for applications is August 31, 2006.
