The Youth Service America/Youth Venture Program is a joint partnership between Youth Service America ( http://www.ysa.org/ ) and Youth Venture, Inc. ( http://www.youthventure.org/ ) that helps youth engage in community service and develop as young social entrepreneurs.
YSA Youth Venture helps make every day National & Global Youth Service Day ( http://www.gysd.org/ ) by providing funding and support to young people (ages 12-20) across the United States who want to create new, sustainable, civic-minded organizations, clubs, or businesses called Ventures. Ventures must be youth-led and designed to be a lasting, sustainable asset to the community; and be a new organization or a new program within an existing organization. Ventures can be school-based clubs, community organizations, or for-profit or nonprofit businesses.
YSA Youth Venture teams are required to plan a National & Global Youth Service Day project every year that their Venture is operational. The YSA Youth Venture Program provides a variety of resources, including a national network of like-minded young people, media opportunities, technical support, helpful toolkits, and workshops as well as seed money grants of up to $1,000 each for start-up expenses. The YSA Youth Venture opportunity is open to individuals who are legal residents of the United States or U.S. territory, district, or property, and between the ages of 12 and 20 years at time of entry.
Proposals must be submitted using the YSA Youth Venture Action Plan format.

Many colleges and universities match the Horatio Alger Scholarship with grants to further help reduce the cost of college education. The scholarship puts recipients in the company of other young people like themselves that refuse to allow circumstances to limit their aspirations.

Raise the Nation Foundation From Marlene
Scholarship For Continuing Education
http://www.raisethenation.org/RTNLibrary/RTNGrants.html
This scholarship is available to single parent women who would like to go to school or continue with their education, but have been denied sufficient resources. Many single parent women are denied educational grants and assistance unless they are living in crisis and poverty and are instead forced to borrow money for tuition and living expenses, which is very difficult to repay based on the national earning average of $24,000 a year - even with an education. We recognize single parent women who want to raise their standard of living and that of their children by continuing education and advancing their careers.
Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST)
http://www.executivewomen.org/ScriptContent/scholarships/asist.cfm
Executive Women International has a chapter in the Detroit/Windsor Area. Offer a scholarship for adult students at transitional points in their lives. Applicants may be single parents, individuals just entering the workforce, or displaced homemakers.
American Legion Auxiliary Nontraditional Student Scholarship

Raise the Nation Foundation
Community Service-Based Grant For Student Loan Repayment
http://www.raisethenation.org/RTNLibrary/RTNGrants.html
This grant is awarded to professional single parent women with outstanding student loan debt who contribute to their community through volunteer work. We honor women who volunteer in their community. Student loan repayment grants are available to women who volunteer their professional talents for an average of 8 hours a month, for a period of time to be determined by the amount of their student loan debt. We recognize that women who are in the helping or teaching professions already contribute to their communities, therefore, no further volunteer work is required to qualify.
