"The response from applicants to the UnitedHealth HEROES program demonstrates that young people are ready to take control of their own lives and effect change in their communities," said Steve Culbertson, president and CEO of Youth Service America. "Children and youth are educating their peers and advocating for healthy life options. I am proud that this program supports and engages young leaders to solve the biggest health challenge they face growing up."

"We believe that as people become more aware of health issues through health literacy and advocacy initiatives they will make positive changes to live better lives ," said Rick Jelinek, CEO of AmeriChoice, a UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) company. "We believe the UnitedHealth HEROES grants will empower teams of students to collaborate with teachers and community leaders to develop their own awareness programs that will make their schools and neighborhoods healthier. In reviewing the grant applications, we were inspired by the creative ideas our young people came up with to help fight obesity and encourage healthier living."

The HEROES service-learning projects are implemented during the spring semester and will culminate on YSA's 21st Global Youth Service Day (GYSD), April 24-26, 2009. GYSD provides an excellent opportunity for students to include their projects in a larger, international youth service movement that seeks to improve communities in all 50 states and in more than 100 countries.

YSA and UnitedHealth Group will offer a second round of UnitedHealth HEROES service-learning grants on August 1, 2009 for projects occurring during the 2009-2010 school year. For more information about the UnitedHealth HEROES program and upcoming grant deadlines, Global Youth Service Day, or to vi
