State Farm Service-Learning Award

9/9/2004:   In a few months, Youth Service America and State Farm will present the State Farm Good Neighbor Service-Learning Award to enable youth and educators to bring the benefits of service learning to more people. One hundred grants of $1,000 are available to teachers, youth (ages 5-25), and service-learning coordinators to implement service-learning projects for National Youth Service Day 2005, April 15-17.

National Youth Service Day mobilizes youth as leaders to identify and address the needs of their communities through service and service-learning, supports youth on a lifelong path of service and civic engagement, and educates the public, the media, and policymakers about the year-round contributions of young people as community leaders.
