This year's 15 Forever Youth Advisory Committee is now accepting grant proposals for youth services in two distinct funding focuses:
- Food Insecurity
- Gender-Based Violence Education
Organizations can apply for either or both of the funding areas.
The committee chose to focus on food insecurity after determining this often unnoticed dynamic plays a big role in the lives of youth. They chose gender-based violence education after identifying a need for greater understanding of how to recognize the root causes and signs of this violence, how to intervene, and how to find help.
15 Forever was established by your Community Foundation in 2006 to promote civic engagement, philanthropy, and leadership among Boulder County youth. Since then, this youth-driven program has granted more than $200K.
Today, 15 Forever is a collaboration with YouthRoots, a national youth philanthropy organization that teaches high school students how to make the world a better place, while developing their leadership and life skills.
The Community Foundation Boulder County's 15 Forever Request for Proposals can be found here through April 1. Programs in the community or in schools that help support youth who are facing these issues are encouraged to apply. Grantees will be announced in late April.
