Youth Matter Grants are mini grants given to youth-led projects that improve safety, increase support, respect and fairness, and make a difference in Anchorage.
Creating projects that support Anchorage youth: Your proposal may be service projects, mentorship programs, a series of events or activities, a media campaign, peer-to-peer programs, culture and arts, civic engagement, or more. Projects must meet the above goals, as well as incorporate best practices for achieving high quality programs. Projects also must have a community impact component which reaches beyond the youth group through volunteer work, a community celebration or educational event, or through another community engagement idea.
Grant funding limits: Each project is limited to a maximum of $5,000 and must be focused on addressing the goals above.
Our Focus: Projects are intended to support youth-led initiatives within the 12-16 year old age range. 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:
