Do you know an exceptional teen or young adult with a passion for creating change? Nominate him or her for the National Child Awareness Month Ambassadors Program, a unique opportunity for service-minded youth, ages 16 to 22, to receive support and leadership training as they develop large-scale service projects that positively impact the lives of young people.

Nominees are also asked to complete a short application about their vision for a change-making service project. Nominations of certain states are open until the grants are filled.

U.S. young people, ages 5-25, are eligible to apply. Projects will take place on or around Global Youth Service Day, April 26-28, 2013. Applications are due by midnight January 31, 2013.
