The Youth Leadership for Service-Learning Excellence Award recognizes service-learning programs and projects that demonstrate outstanding youth leadership. This award focuses on projects that show a high level of youth initiative in all areas including identifying an authentic need, planning the service, and putting that plan into action. Teams of young people participating in service-learning projects can apply. The deadline is December 4.
Representatives from the National Youth Leadership Council will review applications. One winner will be selected to receive this award at Educate. Ignite. Transform., the 27th Annual National Service-Learning Conference in Minneapolis, Minn., March 30 – April 2, 2016. The winner will receive $1,000 to support the program, along with travel, lodging, and registration for the conference for two youth participants and one adult leader. Each youth involved in the winning program will receive an award certificate.
Youth teams representing K-12 service-learning programs in which the service-learning is tied to the school curricula may apply. Although the word “program” is used, applications will be accepted for a particular project as long as it has a long-term impact. Preference will be given to ongoing programs and projects.
NOMINATION REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS
The young people involved in the program must write the application. In cases where youth are unable to write the application due to age or disability, a teacher or service learning coordinator can assist with the application to the extent that is necessary.
