  FUNDING OPPORTUNITES FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONALS

 

Environmental Awards Available

 

Each year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sponsors the President's Environmental Youth Awards (PEYA). Since 1971, this awards program has recognized young people across America who have created projects that demonstrate a commitment to the environment. Young people around the country are invited to participate in the program by submitting a project that benefits the environment. Each year the PEYA program honors a wide variety of environmental projects developed by individual youth, school classes (kindergarten through high school), summer camps, public interest groups, and youth organizations to promote environmental awareness. 

The projects can relate to a wide range of topics including recycling programs in schools and communities; construction of nature preserves; major tree planting programs; media/videos, and newsletters created by students focusing on environmental issues; and environmental science projects. In order to be eligible, a student or students, sponsored by an adult, must submit the details of their project, along with a completed application to their local EPA regional office. The deadline is December 31. For more information about the awards, please visit http://www.epa.gov/enviroed/peya/index.html 

 


 

Pay It Forward Foundation Youth Service Awards

The Pay It Forward Foundation was established to inspire students to get involved around the world, and to provide them with opportunities to create innovative projects. Pay It Forward Mini-Grants are designed to fund one-time service-oriented projects that are identified by youth as activities they would like to perform to benefit their school, neighborhood, or greater community. Schools, churches, and community youth groups (with an adult sponsor) in the U.S. and Canada may apply for funding. Application deadlines are September 15 and February 15 of each year.
