Service-Learning Grants Announced
State Farm® Good Neighbor Service-Learning Grants Encourage Semester-Long Projects
State Farm is proud to team up with YSA (Youth Service America) to offer grants of up to $1,000 for youth-led service-learning initiatives in K-12 public schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Eligible programs will engage youth in service-learning, an effective teaching and learning strategy that promotes student learning, academic achievement, workplace readiness, and healthy communities.
State Farm Good Neighbor Service-Learning Grants encourage semester-long projects (following YSA's Semester of Service framework) that launch on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service (January 16, 2012) and culminate on Global Youth Service Day (April 20-22, 2012).
