Mesa Service Learning administers a mini-grant program for service learning activities involving Mesa Public Schools students of all ages.
Mini-grants are available to Mesa school groups for service learning activities that are either curriculum-based or extracurricular.
A service learning project is defined as one or more community service activities that benefit the students’ school, neighborhood, or greater community and include articulated learning goals for the youth participants. Applicants are encouraged to plan the project with input from the clients or organization who will benefit in order to ensure the project is timely and needed.
A school group may not receive more than two grants during the school year. Preference will be given to school groups who have not received a grant in the past.
A final report is due within a month after completion of a funded project.
Mini-grants are funded by ECA donations.
Funds may be used for supplies, materials, equipment, and transportation.
The total request for each application may not exceed $500.
Up to $300 may be allocated for supplies, materials, and equipment.
Up to $300 may be allocated for transportation.
But the total can only be $500!
And you are welcome to ask for less!
