Abstract: 

WaysToHelp.org invites teens in the United States to apply for grants (up to $500) to fund their community service ideas across any one of 16 issue areas, including clean water, land preservation, global warming and recycling.

We exist to engage, inspire and enable high school students to make a positive difference in the world. We do this by making it easy for them to learn about, and take action against, 16 of today's most pressing social issues in the following areas: the environment, democracy and equality, health, and community issues. At the highest level, we help teens engage in:

  • Saving the environment

  • Helping people in need

It exists to engage, inspire and enable high school students to make a positive difference in the world.
