The Summer of Service Awards

By Cassie Hudson 06.11.2014 blog

Are you championing change in your community? Do you care about making the world a more positive place to live?

If the answer is “YES” Youth Service America wants to recognize you! YSA believes that young people are the driving force behind changing the world. (PS – We believe this too.) The organization works with kids and teens, community groups, schools, and nonprofit partners to “improve communities by increasing the number and diversity of young people serving in substantive roles.”

Called the “Summer of Service Awards,” YSA is rewarding young people who are creating lasting, positive change through volunteer and community service projects. The winners will receive $1,000 to continue their volunteer work.

Wondering if you’re eligible? Read the fine print below:

  1. You must be between the ages of 5-18 and live in the USA
  2. If you’re under 13, have a parent or guardian prepare and submit the application for you
  3. Make the deadline! Apply by midnight on July 31, 2014 to be considered
  4. Have a sponsor! All applicants are required to have a sponsoring organization or school
  5. Most importantly, you must already have a service project in the works in your community

So, what are you waiting for? Apply today!
