I wanted to share this with everyone because it is such a wonderful opportunity. This information is from the National Service Briefing, which is the newsletter I receive from Youth Service America. Thanks Disney!
“Disney’s Friends for Change Grants are open to schools, organizations and individuals planning service projects and will focus on projects implemented by children and youth ages 5-18. The goal of each grant is to inspire children to work with their families, friends, schools and communities to address critical needs in their local, national and global communities.
To be eligible, projects will need to occurany time during 2010 and should include one service or celebratory component on Global Youth Service Day, April 23-25, an annual campaign that mobilizes young people around the world to make a positive impact in their communities. The deadline to apply is next Friday, January 29 http://www.ysa.org/grants.”
