To all community leaders, partners, and educators:
I’m excited to inform you that the State Farm® Youth Advisory Board (YAB) service-learning grant applications are now available from March 1, 2013 until May 3, 2013 at 5 PM CST.
The grants range from $25,000 - $100,000 and are designed to create sustainable change in local communities across the United States and Canada. Public K-12, charter, higher education institutions, and non-profit organizations are eligible if they are able to demonstrate how they plan to impact student achievement within the public K-12 curriculum. All applicants must have a youth contact and adult administrator, as the programs must be youth-driven and youth-led.

Each grant request must fall under one of these issue areas, chosen by the board itself:
  • Community Safety
  • Environmental Responsibility
  • Financial Literacy
  • Access to Higher Education
  • Health and Wellness
As of August 2012, six years after the initial launch of the YAB, the board has awarded more than $24.7 million in grants to organizations in the U.S. and Canada and impacted approximately 14.1 million lives.
