Youthprise creates connections to make lasting, positive changes in the lives of youth.
Youthprise partners with innovative organizations and creative thinkers to make lasting, positive changes in the lives of youth. We work on multiple levels: supporting nonprofit organizations that serve youth; aligning efforts through citywide and statewide initiatives; and providing opportunities directly to young people.
Youthprise knows that our greatest untapped resource is the energy and ingenuity of youth.
Young people lead innovation and model authentic youth engagement across our work, including on our staff and board. Through youth-adult partnerships, we support youth to lead in the design and implementation of programs, public policy, philanthropy, and research.
Youthprise combines funding, capacity building, policy advocacy, research, and youth engagement under one roof.
Youthprise leverages its youth development expertise, organizational infrastructure, and financial, political, and relational capital to coordinate and support large-scale, cross sector initiatives and accelerate promising programs. Learn More
