Step into Service!

"Step into Service" with United Health HEROES Service-Learning Grants! YSA and United Health are teaming up to offer $1,000 grants for youth-led service-learning projects which aim to combat childhood obesity through walking, running or hiking programs. United Health HEROES grantees will lead active service projects that encourage their peers to get moving, learn about healthy lifestyle choices, and do good for others. Whether walking or running, HEROES will count the number of steps they take in their journey towards healthier kids and healthier communities!

Each United Health HEROES project will begin on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, 21st January 2013 and end on Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), 26th - 28th April, 2013.

Schools, service-learning coordinators, non-profits, and students in the health professionals are eligible to apply. For more information and to view a detailed program overview and application guidelines click here.

The online application will close on 15th October 2012.

YSA will hold webinars to help applicants through the application process and answer all of their questions.  The first webinar will be on 13th September at 3:00 pm. Sign up here.
