State Farm YAB Service-Learning Grants Available.

The State Farm® Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is pleased to offer service-learning grants.  The applications are available through May 1.  The grants, which range from $25,000 – $100,000, are designed to create sustainable change in local communities across the United States.  Public K-12, charter, higher education institutions, and non-profit organizations are eligible if you can demonstrate how student achievement within the public K-12 curriculum will be impacted.  All applicants must have a youth contact and adult administrator, as the programs must be youth-driven and youth-led.

Each grant request must fall under one of these issue areas, chosen by the board itself:

Community Safety and Justice
Environmental Responsibility
Economic Inclusion and Financial Literacy
Access to Higher Education
Health and Wellness
Arts and Culture

As of August 2014, eight years after the initial launch of the YAB, the board has awarded more than $31.4 million in grants to organizations in the U.S. and Canada and impacted approximately 18.1 million lives.
