Youth Leaders for Literacy is an initiative of the National Education Association (NEA) and Youth Service America (YSA) to help youth direct their enthusiasm and creativity into reading-related service projects and create a groundswell of literacy service in communities across the United States.
Thirty Youth Leaders for Literacy Semester of Service projects will receive grant funds of up to $500 each. Applications will be judged on youth leadership in developing and implementing the project and the impact of the project to those providing and those being served.
Applications must be postmarked by January 5, 2011. Semester of Service projects will launch on Read Across America Day, March 2, and will culminate on April 15-17 (Global Youth Service Day). For more information and to apply, go to this page on the YSA website.
