Disney and Youth Service America have announced Disney’s Friends for Change Grants designed to help kids working to make environmentally friendly changes in their communities. The new program encourages kids everywhere to take steps together with their friends to help the planet. The Friends for Change Grants will fund kids’ projects that help the environment and will look to engage children ages five to 18 as leaders in their communities. The program will award 150 grants of $500 each throughout 2010.
The grant program is open to schools, organizations, and individuals planning service projects. To be eligible, projects will need to be done any time during 2010 and should include one service or celebratory component on Global Youth Service Day, April 23-25, an annual campaign that mobilizes young people around the world to make a positive impact in their communities.
