What is Youth Mattering?
Youth’s perception they are respected, trusted, supported, valued by others, and able to make a difference in their community.
We are looking to support projects that address the following goals:
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.
Grant funding limits: A total of $25,000 is available for these Youth Matter Grants. Each project is limited to a maximum of $5,000 and must be focused on addressing two or more goals.
Our Aim: 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.
If you have questions, please reach out to Julie at email@example.com
