The Youth Rising mini-grant program is a new partnership with The California Endowment (TCE), a CA-based foundation that specializes in empowering communities that are generating health, people-power, and systems change in California. The program provides $500 – $1000 seed grants to early-stage youth-led (ages 13 to 24) projects aimed at supporting youth visionaries, organizers and dreamers around the State. A youth-powered advisory council will identify and provide startup funding and mentorship to inspiring projects.
Youth Rising launched on September 1, 2016 and will be giving away 50 grants in partnership with The California Endowment.
