Youth Service America Grant Deadline Oct. 1, 2007

I’ve blogged before about this grant opportunity for those interested in promoting youth dialogue, but there is another deadline coming up so here’s the lowdown: The Youth Service America Youth Venture Program, a partnership between Youth Service America (http://www.ysa.org/) and Youth Venture (http://www.genv.net/), is designed to help build the movement of young social entrepreneurs by investing in and encouraging the ideas of young people. The YSA Youth Venture Program provides funding and support to young people (ages 12-20) in the United States who want to create new, sustainable, civic-minded organizations, clubs, or businesses (called “ventures”). To be eligible for the program, ventures must be youth-led and designed to be a lasting asset to the community.

In addition, YSA Youth venture teams are required to plan a Global Youth Service Day (http://www.gysd.org/) project every year that their venture is operational. The YSA Youth Venture Program provides a variety of resources, including a national network of like-minded young people, media opportunities, technical support, helpful toolkits and workshops, as well as seed funding of up to $1,000 for start-up expenses. For application tools and more information about the YSA Youth Venture Partnership Program, visit the Youth Venture Web site.
