About this grant

This grant will support America’s Service Commissions to expand youth-service opportunities throughout the U.S. The grantee will provide eight subgrants to state service commissions to develop model youth-service programs, facilitate a learning cohort of state service commission and in- and out-of-school time staff in service learning as a strategy for youth engagement; and support the identification of sustainable funding opportunities for youth programming. Since 2017, America’s Service Commissions has been working with state service commissions and other national partners, including state afterschool networks, to prioritize the development of opportunities to engage youth in service.
