Apply for NEA Youth Leaders for Literacy grants
| Dec 03, 2010
The National Education Association (NEA) has partnered with Youth Service America to offer Youth Leaders for Literacy grants. These grants will be used to support service-learning projects focused on increasing young people's interest in reading and improving literacy in schools and communities. Successful projects will be youth-led and address an established literacy need in the applicant's school or community. The projects will launch on NEA's Read Across America Day on March 2 and end on Global Youth Service Day April 15-17.
Youth Leaders for Literacy will award $500 grants to 30 young people from across the U.S. Youth ages 5-25 from any of the 50 states or the District of Columbia are eligible to apply along with an adult ally. The application deadline is midnight January 5, 2011. For more information about the grants and the application, visit the Youth Service America website.
