State Farm® Partner Grants Empower Youth and the Community

Youth Advisory Board Grants

The State Farm Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is one of the nation's most unique philanthropic programs. Thirty youth from across the country are charged with implementing a $5 million-a-year signature philanthropic grant budget. Through two separate grant programs, the YAB addresses issues critical to communities across the U.S. and Canada by providing grants of up to $100,000 to schools and nonprofits. Grants must address an unmet community need, empower young people, be sustainable, and incorporate all of the elements of service-learning.

National Council of La Raza (NCLR) Service-Learning Grants

In partnership with State Farm, NCLR has developed a model for service-learning integrating the principles of service-learning in the daily curriculum of select network schools. NCLR's service-learning initiative fosters community development projects conceptualized by students and teachers of Latino-serving schools through an integration of intentional teaching, classroom concepts, and building on the cultural assets of the Latino community.

Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grants

State Farm is proud to team up with YSA (Youth Service America) to offer grants up to $1,000 per classroom or $4,000 per school to support educators in K-12 public schools across the United States who engage their students in meaningful learning through service. Each grant engages participating teachers and students in YSAs signature school program, Semester of Service, an extended service and learning program that leads to student achievement, college and career readiness, and stronger communities.

During a Semester of Service, students learn, apply, and demonstrate academic content and 21st century skills through the planning and implementation of substantive service-learning projects. Teachers ensure that classroom activities are aligned with College- and Career-Ready Standards or other required state/local academic standards. Participating educators also receive one-day of professional development training.

Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) - Lead Agency Grants

Through our relationship with Youth Service America, we provide grants up to $3,000 for organizations across the United States that increase the scale, visibility, and impact of Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) by supporting youth-led service activities or community events in their city, region, and/or state. GYSD Lead Agencies convene a partner coalition of neighborhood organizations, engage hundreds of youth volunteers in high-impact service on GYSD, and reach out to local media and public officials.

While planning and preparing for GYSD, Lead Agencies have opportunities to build, strengthen, and expand their own year-round youth service or service-learning programs. Past GYSD Lead Agencies have leveraged their position to form new partnerships, increase their volunteer base, build relationships with local media and public officials, secure additional funding, and provide leadership opportunities for their staff and youth leaders.
