Want to start a project in your community that helps addresses a cause you care about? Disney is offering support to young people with their Friends for Change Grant. Having recently launched “Project Green,” they are currently looking for young people who want to help clean up the environment.
Disney’s Friends for Change Grants is meant to help youth that are making environmentally friendly changes in their communities. Grants are open to schools, organizations and individuals planning service projects and will focus on projects implemented by children ages 5-18. (Source: Youth Venture)

A recent grant recipient was Olivia’s Bird Illustrations, who we wrote about in a previous post. Olivia is raising money through her artwork to help save animals affected by the oil spill in the Gulf Coast. She and the cast of Disney’s Camp Rock 2 recently cleaned up the Gulf of Mexico with Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.
