RBC I 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 5-18 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.
2014 grant-awarded projects included: Warm Winters, a program run by a 14-year-old to collect coats, hats and gloves left at ski resorts to help keep the homeless warm; Shred Kids Cancer, a campaign organized by a 14-year-old to fundraise for research to help find cures for pediatric cancer; and Braeden’s Brown Bags, a foundation founded by a 10-year-old to provide healthy meals to kids in need.
