The Foundation empowers youth to succeed at school, in their communities and in life. We are committed to fostering their ability to become equitable and inclusive leaders and establish healthy personal relationships that are free of violence. We provide tools, resources and experiences so youth and young adults are empowered to achieve their hopes and dreams.
Eligibility: The Foundation’s current funding opportunity will grant $3 million across two focus areas:
The Relationship Violence Prevention Programs focus area will support innovative, local, and culturally relevant healthy relationship education and relationship violence prevention-related programming for teens and young adults of color and/or other marginalized communities.
The Inclusive Leadership Programs for Youth and Educators focus area will support the following:
1) service-learning programs that enable youth to engage in community activities that increase their capacity to be inclusive leaders, develop a sense of collective responsibility, and take action for social change and racial equity;
2) positive youth development programs that empower youth to reach their full potential as leaders who promote equity and inclusion within their learning environments and communities; and
3) professional development programs for educators to improve their culturally responsive teaching practices that result in safe, affirming, and equitable learning environments in which all youth are able to thrive.
Award: Grants of $25,000 to $100,000 for a 12-month period and up to $200,000 for a 24-month period will be awarded. A minimum of five grants will be awarded for each of the two focus areas.
