Southern Poverty Law Center Offers Youth Grants to Promote Tolerance
Deadline: Open
Tolerance.org ( http://www.tolerance.org/ ) and Teaching
Tolerance, educational programs of the Southern Poverty
Law Center ( http://www.splcenter.org/ ), have joined with
the Study Circles Resource Center to launch the second
phase of the national "Mix It Up" youth campaign. Launched
last November, the "Mix it Up" campaign is designed to
help young people understand and address the issue of
social boundaries in their schools and communities. The
campaign will continue in Spring 2003 with a series of
activities, including a grants program for young people.
The Spring 2003 Mix It Up Grants Program will fund youth-
directed activist projects that focus on identifying,
crossing, and challenging social boundaries in schools and
communities. Non-renewable grants of $250 will be awarded
to the winning project.
Proposed projects should demonstrate youth leadership
(i.e., projects envisioned and implemented by youth
activists); involve collaborative efforts across social
boundaries (i.e., different youth groups or clubs working
together, or school-based clubs working with community-
based organizations); and be part of continuing efforts
to identify, cross, or challenge social boundaries.
See the Mix It Up Web site for complete application
guidelines and for further information on the program's
components.
