Check it Out: NEW Grant Opportunity!

Grant Name: Special Olympics Get Into It® Grants

Funded by: Youth Service America

Description: Special Olympics is partnering with Youth Service America to offer Get Into It® grants that bring together students of all abilities to fight childhood obesity in their schools and communities. The Get Into It® curriculum helps to develop a service-learning program that gives youth the opportunity to make a change. The program awards grants of $500 and $1000 to help youth create and implement local, hands-on programs to fight childhood obesity. Each grant also engages participating youth in service-learning, an effective teaching and learning strategy that supports student learning, academic achievement, and workplace readiness. Get Into It® grant projects launch on Spread the Word to End the Word Day (March 2, 2011) and culminate on Global Youth Service Day (April 15-17, 2011). All 50 states and the District of Columbia are eligible to apply. The application must be completed by a teacher and a unified pair of students (one with and one without an intellectual disability).
