Apply to Be a 2018 Global Youth Service Day Lead Agency
YSA is now accepting applications for the 2018 Global Youth Service Day Lead Agency program. With the generous support of State Farm, the program offers organizations funding, recognition, and ongoing training to organize high-impact, high-visibility youth-led projects for Global Youth Service Day (April 20-22, 2018). As the official organizer of GYSD in their region, GYSDLead Agencies build a coalition of K-12 schools, youth development organizations, and community-based organizations in their region to activate youth, ages 5-25, to acquire 21st Century Skills by solving community problems through service or service-learning projects.
Community-based organizations (including youth development organizations and afterschool programs, local government agencies, volunteer centers, AmeriCorps and national service programs, state service commissions, faith-based organizations, community coalitions, etc.) located in the 50 U.S. states + DC are eligible to apply. 50 organizations will receive grants of up to $1,000 to build a partner coalition of at least 10 other organizations that collectively activates at least 500 youth volunteers on GYSD (April 20-22, 2018).
