generationOn is a global youth service movement igniting the power of all kids to make their mark on the world. During Kids Care Week 2010, October 17th to the 23rd, we are asking young people to "make your mark on the world: go the extra mile."
To inspire youth to make their mark on the world, we are connecting Kids Care Week 2010 projects to The Extra Mile – Points of Light Volunteer Pathway. This national monument in Washington, DC is dedicated to the spirit of service and honors heroes of our Nation's service movement from founders of major service organizations to civil rights leaders.
Thanks to our partnership with Hasbro Children's Fund, in celebration of Kids Care Week 2010, generationOn will award mini-grants in the amount of $250, to support service projects that are related to the social issues the Extra Mile Honorees addressed. Issues include:
Aging &the Elderly Animals Civil Rights Disabilities
Disaster Relief Economy Education Environment
Health & Health Care Homelessness Human Rights Hunger
Immigration Peace Poverty Unemployment
Newly created within the Points of Light Institute, generationOn brings the nation's leading youth service organizations and programs under one umbrella including New York-based Children for Children, The League, Learning to Give and Points of Light's KidsCare Clubs, HandsOn Schools and HandsOn Network's youth-driven programs. With service learning and volunteer action at its co re, generationOn mobilizes the energy, ingenuity and compassion of young people, starting at an early age, to discover their power and potential to solve real world problems through service.
About Kids Care Week
Kids Care Week, presented by generationOn and celebrated the third week of October, recognizes the power of kids to help others in their community and the world. During the week, young people focus their compassion on a specific social issue through a service project. Kids Care Week culminates on Make a Difference Day, a national day of doing good sponsored by USA Weekend and held in partnership with HandsOn Network.
