Youth Service America and Sodexo Foundation Invite Applications for Childhood Hunger Lead Organizer Program - Applications due July 15, 2012
A program of Youth Service America and the Sodexo Foundation, the Sodexo Foundation Lead Organizer program will provide financial and technical support to organizations in the United States interested in addressing the issue of childhood hunger through youth engagement. The goal of the program is for participants to engage youth between the ages of 5 and 25 in solving an issue that affects their peers.
The program will work with ten or more partner organizations to engage at least six hundred youth volunteers in learning about and addressing the issue of childhood hunger in their communities, beginning during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, November 10-17, 2012, and continuing through Global Youth Service Day, April 26-28, 2013. Lead Organizers also will work to build new partnerships in their community and increase public awareness about the issue of childhood hunger and young people's role in solving the problem.
Ten organizations will receive $2,000 in financial assistance as well as travel and lodging expenses for the Youth Service Institute provided by the Sodexo Foundation.
