Grants Promote Youth Engagement in Childhood Hunger Issues
The Sodexo Foundation Lead Organizer Program, administered by Youth Service America (YSA), supports nonprofit organizations interested in addressing the issue of childhood hunger through youth engagement.
The goal of this program is for participants to engage youth, ages 5-25, in solving an issue that affects many of their peers. Lead Organizers will work with ten or more partner organizations to engage at least 600 youth volunteers in learning about and addressing the issue of childhood hunger in their communities, beginning during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, November 10-17, 2012, and continuing through Global Youth Service Day, April 26-28, 2013.
Twelve organizations will receive $2,000 in financial assistance as well as travel expenses for the Youth Service Institute. The application deadline is July 15, 2012. Visit the YSA website to submit an online application.
