Youth Service America - Programs

Programs

With the support of the State Farm Companies Foundation and PARADE Magazine, Youth Service America organizes Global Youth Service Day, a public education campaign to highlight the amazing contributions that young people make to their communities 365 days of the year. As the largest youth service event in the world and YSA's premier program, it draws together a remarkable consortium of local, regional, national, and international partners. YSA developed the Global Youth Service Day program in 2000 which now takes place in more than 100 countries.

Other programs include:

  • Technology, such as SERVEnet.org, the nation’s largest database of volunteering opportunities; YouthMove.org to deliver state specific resources to students; YSA.org to support the organization's outreach to partners; and GYSD.org to support Global Youth Service Day;
  • Microfinance grants that use a teaching application process to encourage hundreds of high quality, measurable, service-learning projects by young people around the world;
  • Government relations to encourage an ongoing Federal and State investment in national service programs such as AmeriCorps and in service-learning programs including Learn & Serve America;
  • Youth Voice initiative to help young people influence adults and contribute to policies and problems that affect them;
  • Communications to spread the word to media about young people as assets and resources.

YSA has also been a long-time partner supporting the National Service Learning Conference, co-sponsored by the National Youth Leadership Council.

Famous quotes containing the word programs:

    Whether in the field of health, education or welfare, I have put my emphasis on preventive rather than curative programs and tried to influence our elaborate, costly and ill- co-ordinated welfare organizations in that direction. Unfortunately the momentum of social work is still directed toward compensating the victims of our society for its injustices rather than eliminating those injustices.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    We attempt to remember our collective American childhood, the way it was, but what we often remember is a combination of real past, pieces reshaped by bitterness and love, and, of course, the video past—the portrayals of family life on such television programs as “Leave it to Beaver” and “Father Knows Best” and all the rest.
    Richard Louv (20th century)

    Short of a wholesale reform of college athletics—a complete breakdown of the whole system that is now focused on money and power—the women’s programs are just as doomed as the men’s are to move further and further away from the academic mission of their colleges.... We have to decide if that’s the kind of success for women’s sports that we want.
    Christine H. B. Grant, U.S. university athletic director. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. A42 (May 12, 1993)
