Deadline: August 30, 2007
From the web site:
“The Walt Disney Company and Youth Service America are pleased to announce grants of up to $500 to support youth-led service projects. These grants support youth (ages 5-14) in planning and implementing service projects in their community. Teachers, older youth (15-25), youth-leaders, and youth-serving organizations are also eligible to apply, provided that they that engage younger youth (5-14) in planning and implementing the service. Service can take place between October 1 and November 26, 2007. Projects can address themes such as the environment, disaster relief, public health and awareness, community education, hunger, literacy, or any issue that youth identify as a community need.”
Since literacy is listed as an area of support, perhaps libraries can apply for funds to support their Teen Read Week efforts. Learn about Teen Read Week online at www.ala.org/teenread.
