Miley Cyrus 'Gets Her Good On' With Youth Service America
Miley Cyrus has teamed up with Youth Service America to create Get Ur Good On, a social network that encourages young people to "do good" in their communities.
At GetUrGoodOn.org, kids can register to become "volunteers" and apply for one of 100 Get Ur Good On Grants, which award $500 to youth-led community projects that address needs such as poverty, education and environmental sustainability.
"People my age are making positive contributions to their communities every single day," Miley said in a press release. "My generation is one that cares about the environment, about hunger and about human rights. We use the Internet, videos and even music to raise awareness of these issues to our friends and family. I'm excited to see so much energy to do 'good' from teens."
Grant applications are due February 22, 2010. For more information, visit www.GetUrGoodOn.org.
