Youth Matter Grants are mini grants given to youth-led projects to build safety, foster supportive youth-adult relationships, and make a difference in the community.
Creating projects that support Anchorage youth: Your proposal must focus on one of two specific themes: wellness and transportation safety. You will also define the youth community you wish to impact, and what difference you’d like to make within that group. You must also demonstrate a commitment to incorporating best practices for achieving high quality programs. If funded, AYDC will offer training and supports to build a project that will address the above goals and make a difference!
Grant funding limits: Each project is limited to a maximum of $5,000.
Our Focus: Projects are intended to support youth-led initiatives that make a difference among other youth. Projects will receive higher scores that involve youth in leadership roles, in decision-making, and project proposal development and implementation.
We are looking to support projects that address the following goals:
