Do Something Summer Jobless Grants

DATE June 26, 2011LEAVE A COMMENT

Deadline: July 10

This summer’s teen unemployment rate has been marked at a whopping 75% – compared to 2000 when it was 55%. DoSomething.org thinks this is a great opportunity for youth to step up and start your own projects to provide the young people in your area with volunteer opportunities in place of jobs. These grants can be used to help you run your volunteer efforts and include more teens in what you’re doing by covering costs including food, materials and supplies, event space, transportation to and from a volunteer event. All volunteer programs must engage at least 25 teens in volunteerism. 8 $2,000 grants and 18 $500 grants will be awarded. http://bit.ly/jVH39y
