Youth-Led Service Projects Supported by Riley’s Way Foundation
The Riley’s Way Foundation’s Call for Kindness Program empowers young leaders throughout the country to use kindness and empathy to create meaningful connections and positive change.
The program will provide grants of up to $3,000 to up to 30 teen-led projects in 2021.
Funded projects may tackle anything from pressing equity and social justice issues to building meaningful connections in schools or communities. Five grants will be specifically dedicated to projects related to food insecurity.
Teens living in the United States, ages 13-19, may enter by essay or video describing a new project, or an improvement to an existing project. Each project is required to have both a partner organization and an adult mentor.
Winners will also join a cohort of fellows from across the country to participate in a dynamic leadership development experience. The application deadline is April 7, 2021.
