  2. Really multiply the effects of your MLK Day of Service by continuing all the way through to Global Youth Service Day (April 24-26) and make it a Semester of Service – we have some guides, ideas, and more over at SemesterOfService.org , and for selected states, we have a grant available for youth-led projects that address childhood obesity (Deadline: January 15, 2009, more info at YSA.org/awards )
