Invest in Youth

Brooklyn Community Foundation has launched Invest in Youth with a 10-year commitment aimed at tackling significant barriers to success for 16 to 24 year olds, particularly young people of color. In its first year, the Foundation will deploy over $2 million through Invest in Youth to Brooklyn-serving nonprofits in the form of a competitive grantmaking program, strategic partnerships, youth fellowships, and youth-led grants. The initiative will emphasize youth development and leadership, with a focus on under resourced neighborhoods and immigrant communities. The Foundation will also build and support new programs and services directed at diverting young people from the criminal justice system and providing them with economic and educational opportunities. Among other considerations, Invest in Youth will prioritize support for organizations focused on racial justice and those led by members of the communities they serve. Visit Invest in Youth 2015 Grantmaking Program to learn more about the funding opportunity. A Letter of Inquiry is due before June 30, 2015 at 5 pm.
