A $500 Friends for Change Youth Grant from Disney supported Parker resident Nicole Steiner in a community service project for Global Youth Service Day April 17.

Steiner, 16, is one of 125 children and teens across the country awarded a grant through Youth Service America to lead projects that make a positive, lasting change in the world. Along with a group of youth volunteers from Legend High School, Steiner delivered games, puzzles and books on Global Youth Service Day.

Steiner began her project, “A Game for You,” in June 2014. She collects and distributes new and gently used board games, puzzles and books to those in need. Her goal is to encourage those who are experiencing a life difficulty by giving them a gift. Recipients of the donated games, puzzles and books include families at the Ronald McDonald House, Children's Hospital, assisted-living facilities, women's shelters, veterans associations and special-needs classrooms. To date, more 3,200 people throughout Colorado have been impacted by donations from “A Game for You.”

Now in its 27th year Global Youth Service Day provides an opportunity for young people to find their voice, take action, and make a positive impact in their communities.

“Nicole is a true Friend for Change,” said Steven A. Culbertson, president and CEO of Youth Service America. “She has found her voice, and is taking action to make an impact on people who are undergoing a difficult time. People love to receive games as gifts, and her service is helping to brighten the lives of those who are hospitalized, those who have served our country, the elderly and kids with special needs.”
