        Creates the Youth Service Scholarship Act.  Establishes the Youth

   Commission  on  Community Service.  Provides that the Program shall be      
   made available to consortia of school  districts  and  community-based

   next year, a pupil shall earn a $500 scholarship.  Provides  that  the      
   pupil  may redeem the scholarship if the pupil enrolls in a private or      
   public  postsecondary  or  vocational  institution  in   this   State.      
   Requires  the  Commission to submit to the General Assembly a study of
