Our volunteers come up with innovative solutions to community-based challenges. We award the funds to support them.
Partners volunteers travel with purpose. They build bridges across borders, exchange expertise and partner with communities to create lasting change. Our small project assistance grants support local community development initiatives across the Americas.
Funds are available to support community-based projects that are planned and executed by chapter partnerships. Grants are awarded to selected projects, many of which have grown out of exchange, that demonstrate local ownership through matching cash or in-kind contributions. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of State.
