Want to make a difference? Take action? Solve a tough community problem? Whether you’re a child, teen, educator, or adult champion, YSA Grants can power your youth-led service and service-learning projects year-round.

Why grants? We believe in investing in youth as problem solvers to address the most important challenges facing our world. This bold strategy puts children and youth in the driver’s seat and gives them the power to plan, implement, and witness the full impact of their service. YSA Grants can help.
