Join Disney in a Movement to Make the World Healthier, Greener, and Stronger
YSA and Disney are teaming up this summer to inspire kids and families to make a positive impact in their communities through the Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service campaign. We're calling on children and teens everywhere to use fun summer activities - like sports, arts, reading, or being outdoors - to make their communities healthier, greener, and stronger. Kids who volunteer - with their friends or family, or on their own - can apply for a $500 Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant to create a project or continue and expand their impact throughout the rest of the year.
Youth, ages 5-18, in the U.S. can visit YSA.org/BeInspired to tell their volunteer story, get inspiration and planning resources, and apply for a Disney Be Inspired Summer of Service grant. 250 youth-led service projects will be selected and $500 grants will be awarded to each winner's sponsoring organization to support their project efforts in the fall. Applications will be accepted through September 30, 2017 and grantees may have a chance to be recognized by Disney ABC Television Group or their local ABC affiliate.
