UnitedHealthcare, a major US health insurer, is collaborating with Youth Service America to invite schools and other community-based nonprofit organizations to Step into Service by applying for UnitedHealth HEROES grants. The purpose of this funding is to support youth-led service-learning projects that aim to combat childhood obesity through walking, running or hiking programs.
Multiple grants of $1,000 are available to select applicants. Youth-led service-learning projects that include an activity element where young people can count their steps, such as walking, running or hiking, as well as a service component which provides direct service, enables advocacy on behalf of a cause, or features youth philanthropy, are eligible for application.Deadline:
