UNLV Selected for The Allstate Foundation Youth Service Stimulus Grant

UNLV’s own Service Learning & Leadership is excited to announce that it received a $30,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation in collaboration with the Center for Expanding Leadership & Opportunity (CELO) to support youth-led, youth-driven community service among students. This grant is part of The Allstate Foundation’s national efforts to transform how we engage, equip, and prepare youth to participate in community service. 

Funding at UNLV will be used to expand access to existing community engagement programs such as Service Day, Alternative Break Trips, and the student Impact Awards in addition to providing recognition of individual students for their outstanding contributions to the Southern Nevada community. Funding for UNLV is part of the “A Return to Service” initiative designed to catalyze change while positioning youth-led, youth-driven service as essential for improving communities.

More about the Center for Expanding Leadership & Opportunity (CELO): CELO envisions a world where high-quality opportunities are distributed as equally as the abundance of talent in our communities, and every young person can develop the essential capacities to navigate an increasingly complex world, reach their potential, and contribute to their communities. We accomplish this by integrating the science of learning and cutting-edge research with program innovation and community co-creation of learning solutions. Learn more about CELO.

More about The Allstate Foundation: The Allstate Foundation empowers people and communities so they can thrive. Established in 1952, The Foundation takes bold actions and inspires people to act by empowering youth to serve and improve communities, working to close the racial wage gap, and disrupting the cycle of relationship abuse. The Foundation also supports nonprofit leaders through the Nonprofit Leadership Center.
