UL Safer Roads, Safer India Youth Service Grants - YSA

Youth Service America (YSA) and UL are looking for creative ideas from young people about how they can help create safer roads and a safer India during Global Youth Service Day - April 17-19, 2015 - and beyond. Two YSA Grants programs will help youth find their voice, take action, and make an impact on the issue of road safety in India. 16 Safer Roads, Safer India Youth Fellows, ages 15-25, will be selected - 4 each from Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune. Youth Fellows will receive a grant of up to USD $1,000 and an in-person training in March 2015 to lead a 6-month-long road safety campaign that includes public awareness and education events, volunteer service projects, and policy advocacy activities. Up to 40 primary, secondary or tertiary classrooms - up to 10 in each of 4 cities: Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, and Pune - will be selected to be Classrooms with a Cause: Safer Roads, Safer India. Educators will receive a grant of up to USD $500 and in-person training in March 2015 to support a student-led service-learning project that challenges students to use what they've learned in the classroom to lead a road safety project in their community during the last 4-6 weeks of the school year. Youth and educators can apply through April 9, 2015 at www.YSA.org/SaferIndia
