Do Something Invites Young People to Apply for Community Project Grantsd

Each fall and spring, Do Something (http://dosomething.org/) awards grants of $500 each to ten young people who submit creative proposals for solving local problems. Members of Do Something’s Youth Advisory Council evaluate the proposals and award grants to the most deserving projects in three areas: community building, health, and the environment. An applicant must be 25 years old or younger on May 1, 2006, to receive a 2006 Do Something grant. Applicants also must have a mentor to apply for a grant. A mentor can be a friend, relative, teacher, coach, or anyone 18 years old or older who is willing to help the applicant with his or her project. Applicants may apply for a grant either individually or on behalf of a group or team. Visit the Do Something Web site for complete program information and application procedures. Deadline: May 15, 2006.
