Looking for a way to increase participation in your programs while connecting with the larger youth service movement in your city or state?
Youth Service America has the perfect opportunity for you to do so; apply to be a Lead Agency for National & Global Youth Service Day 2007! Lead Agencies are organizations across the United States that increase the scope, visibility, and sustainability of National & Global Youth Service Day by leading city, regional, or statewide service projects. Past Lead Agencies have been successful in garnering national media attention, developing new partnerships, and engaging elected and public officials in their service and service-learning projects.
Lead Agencies receive a planning grant sponsored by State Farm Companies Foundation and direct assistance and support from Youth Service America to ensure a successful National & Global Youth Service Day.
