What is United for youth?
Data from the Children and Youth Impact Survey identified a deficit in belonging and engagement from our youth. United for Youth was inspired by the idea to better serve our youth.
Youth-serving organizations in our region need an infusion of funding in order to empower and engage our youth to identify and solve problems using innovation and compassion.
United for Youth will function in a multiphase approach:
- Training and capacity building for youth serving non-profits; Global Innovation Training (GIMI) and organizational capabilities (technology, data capturing, etc.)
- Seed funding for youth inspired projects that address critical issues
