Chapters Redefining Education Advocacy Through Empowerment (CREATE) Grant

CREATE Grants are chapter and/or statewide community service projects that positively promote the NEA Student Program through strategies designed to enhance public education, increase advocacy and outreach to communities; support younger educators involvement in the Association;  and supports the development of innovative approaches to engagement. CREATE projects can make a positive difference for communities. Today’s students are faced with tremendous obstacles to learning and survival. There is a direct correlation between what happens in communities and what happens in schools. NEA Student Program members who volunteer in CREATE projects are able to help communities overcome many of the challenges students face and provide them an opportunity to lead productive lives. 

Each chapter-only project must involve a NEA Student Program campus chapter, a NEA local affiliate, and a community organization.  Each state-wide project must involve a NEA Student Program state chapter, the state student leadership, a community in which the project is occurring, community partners, and a NEA constituency (NEA-Retired, ESP, Higher Ed, or Active).             

All applications must be submitted electronically—no exceptions!
