Do you know a young social entrepreneur? Send them to this link.
The YouthActionNet Awards offer grants of $500 each to help fund the social change projects of young social entrepreneurs around the world.
The awards are supported by a global youth development initiative of the International Youth Foundation and Nokia. Each year twenty exceptional young social entrepreneurs are selected as YouthActionNet Fellows through a competitive application process. In addition to receiving a $500 grant, YouthActionNet Fellows participate in a week-long capacity building workshop in Washington, D.C. A key focus of the workshop is facilitating peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities.
The contest is open to all young people between the ages of 18 and 29. Applicants should be founders of existing projects/ organizations or leading a project within an organization, and must be able to clearly articulate their learning objectives through the fellowship.
Deadline: May 15, 2007.
