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 convene stakeholders; provide training, coaching and technical assistance; and link organizations in communities of practice.
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 builds the capacity of youth-serving organizations to provide quality expanded learning programs and invests in citywide and statewide initiatives that coordinate the work of service providers, public agencies, funders and schools so dollars stretch farther and more young people are served.
