This grant encourages outstanding summer learning programs by providing financial assistance, while recognizing YALSA members for outstanding program development. The applicant must plan and present an outline for a teen-focused summer learning program administered through a library. The program must be open to all teens (12-18 years). YALSA encourages innovative proposals that are inclusive of underserved teen populations, including but not limited to teens with disabilities and teens who speak English as a second language.
The $1,000 grant, made possible by Dollar General, is to be used to support the program. A total of twenty grants are available. Individual library branches within a larger system are welcome to apply.
