Typically, Lead Agencies are local, regional, or statewide nonprofit organizations with a focus on youth development and positive community engagement. Nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S are eligible to apply. The application deadline is July 31, 2015. Visit the YSA website to learn more about the program.
