Thanks to Youth Service America, I found out about this grant. I have applied for their grants before without luck but after my amazing summer in Africa, I figured I had a better chance. It worked! I am so excited to use this grant in a creative way! Usually I just donate prize money to my partners. But I feel a responsibility to use this grant to grow my Water Walk 2014 and engage more kids in my community. YSA is all about engaging youth so I want to honor them by combining my passion projects with their goals. Stay tuned while I figure out how to get the most mileage from this very generous grant!
