$500 grants available for youth summer creativity

RBC I As schools are now out for the summer, Youth Service America (YSA) is calling on kids to make this a Summer of Creativity.

YSA, through support from Disney | ABC Television Group, will award Summer of Creativity grants to young change-makers who have ideas and projects that positively impact their community.
Youth aged 5 to 18 years in the U.S. are eligible to apply for Summer of Creativity grants by submitting service project ideas that will make a difference in their local communities.
One hundred and twenty-five winners will be awarded individual $500 grants to implement their projects. Select grantees will have a chance to be recognized on Good Morning America or their local ABC affiliate. Applications will be accepted through Aug. 10 at YSA.org/BeInspired.
“We know that young people are uniquely suited to help solve problems—if given the opportunity,” said Steven A. Culbertson, president and CEO of YSA. “We need youth to be leaders and problem solvers today, not just the leaders of a distant tomorrow.
