Grant Opportunities

In partnership with public and private funders, Youthprise provides grants and technical assistance to nonprofit organizations in Minnesota. Our grants advance youth access to expanded learning opportunities, economic opportunities, and health & safety.

Youthprise operates competitive grant processes, sponsors events from like-minded organizations, and has established strategic partnerships that advance mutual goals.

Growth Strategies

In 2014, Youthprise developed four growth strategies to accelerate progress toward our goals and increase resources for the field over the next three years:

  • Expand Impact through Leveraging: Intentionally seek high-leverage opportunities with the right projects and the right partners to advance our mission and maximize our impact;
  • Advance Racial Equity: Develop policies, practices and strategic investments that ensure the distribution of resources, opportunities, and burdens are not determined or predictable by race;
  • Align Systems Regionally: Coordinate collaborative projects across the Twin Cities to advance youth outcome measurement, data collection and program quality;
  • Grow Youth Role: Deepen work based on lessons learned from pilots, boost the # of youth engaged, increase the amount of investment in youth, and expand statewide.
