Do you want to make a difference in your community? Youth can use the activities they enjoy to #LeadASAP through an Awareness, Service, Advocacy or Philanthropy (ASAP) project. Tapestry Collection by Hilton™ and Youth Service America are partnering to activate youth to organize projects that improve neighborhoods around new Tapestry Collection locations.
Tapestry Collection grants of $1000 will be awarded to up to 5 youth, schools, youth development/afterschool programs, and community-based organizations in cities with a Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel to support youth-led projects that activate volunteers ages 12-25.
Proposed projects should address a cause in the community (such as poverty, hunger, health and well-being, education, equality, safety, climate change, environment, peace, etc.) by either educating others, volunteering, advocating, or fundraising. Youth will incorporate the arts into their projects to share their unique stories!
grantees will have a chance to be recognized by Hilton and Youth
Service America at an event at The Graham Georgetown, Tapestry Collection by Hilton.
