Young Social Entrepreneurs Invited to Apply for YouthActionNet Awards

The YouthActionNet Awards offer grants of $500 each to help fund the social change projects of young social entrepreneurs around the world. The awards are supported by a global youth development initiative of the International Youth Foundation (http://iyfnet.org/) and Nokia. Each year twenty exceptional young social entrepreneurs are selected as YouthActionNet Fellows through a competitive application process. In addition to receiving a $500 grant, YouthActionNet Fellows participate in a week-long capacity building workshop in Washington, D.C. A key focus of the workshop is facilitating peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities.

The contest is open to all young people between the ages of 18 and 29. Applicants should be founders of existing projects/ organizations or leading a project within an organization, and must be able to clearly articulate their learning objectives through the fellowship. Proficiency in English is required, and applications must be submitted in English. Complete program information and application materials are available at the program’s Web site. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2007.
