YouthActionNet to Help Fund Youth-Led Social Change

YouthActionNet (www.youthactionnet.org) will present awards to youth leaders and emerging projects that promote social change and connect youth with local communities. The YouthActionNet Awards are supported by Make a Connection, a global initiative of the International Youth Foundation (www.iyfnet.org)and Nokia (www.nokia.com). To be eligible for an award, youth-led projects should have clearly defined goals and the potential for growth or further replication. Final selections are made following a peer-review process in which previous award winners select the next round of awardees. Award recipients will receive $500 and are eligible to participate in an international capacity-building workshop. The program is open to all young people between the ages of 18 and 29. Individuals applying must have a leadership role in a youth-led initiative that works to create positive change in their community, and applications must be written in English. The YouthActionNet Awards will be held once a year. This year’s deadline is April 15, 2006, with winners to be announced July 30, 2006. Visit the YouthActionNet Web site for complete program guidelines, application procedures, and information on previous award winners.
