The Youth Grant Initiative (YGI) is a unique and exciting opportunity to be a part of community outreach through the power and process of giving grants. In 2021, we will meet in a hybrid model – some virtual and some in-person sessions. Car-pooling options and rides are available to make joining the experience easy.
We believe you have distinct and exceptional insights into the needs of youth in our community! This experience is designed to use your ideas and will have an immediate and meaningful impact within the community. Joining the Youth Grant Initiative is an opportunity for you to be in charge of the future by creating and leading an epic journey through the world of philanthropy, equity and ultimately impacting our communities through athletics for the better.
If you will be in 7th or 8th grade in September 2021, we want to hear from you!
The YGI teams will meet 7 times within September – December. Meeting topics will include: leadership, understanding of a nonprofit organization, basics of community engagement, our grant making process, review of applications and the value of relationships. By the end of the year, each YGI team will work together to make grant awards and funding recommendation for a provided pool of $5,000, to the Multnomah Athletic Foundation Board.
