Teen Read Week Grant

Through funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, YALSA will offer ten $1,000 grants to recognize outstanding Teen Read Week activities from its members!

The theme for Teen Read Week 2017 is "Unleash Your Story." Applicants for the grant should demonstrate how the funds will help support teens in writing, telling and sharing their own stories  as well as finding stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library.

Individual library branches within a larger system are welcome to apply. The application deadline is June 1, 2017. Grant recipients will be announced the week of July 10, 2017.

To determine if you are eligible, you must answer yes to the following questions

  • Is your activity organized through a library?
  • Is your program open to all teens in the community?
  • Do you work directly with teens?
  • Are you a personal member of YALSA?
  • Is your library within 20 miles of a Dollar General store?  Find out at Dollar General's Store Locator.

Please follow the link below to the online application.
