WHAT IS YOUTHPRISE?

Youthprise is a resource to youth-serving organizations and systems throughout Minnesota. We reduce disparities with and for Minnesota youth by mobilizing and investing resources, advancing knowledge, and advocating for change. Our three priority areas include: 

  • Learning and leadership
  • Economic opportunity
  • Health and safety

All of our work is youth-centered. 


THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUTHBANK

Traditional philanthropies typically organize based on ‘best practices’ without talking to those who are affected. YouthBank teaches young people skills and gives them an opportunity to engage in philanthropy to create solutions to the challenges they identify and face. Diverse group of peers are recruited, and together: 

  • Learn grantmaking skills
  • Conduct research to identify the most pressing issues facing their community
  • Raise funds
  • Promote a call for grants
  • Interview applicants
  • Issue grants
  • Evaluate the results
  • Celebrate successes

Together, young people co-create the community in which they live and are empowered to become philanthropic leaders in their communities.


OUR 2019 GOAL

Our goal is to raise $5,000 from the community to expand our YouthBank model to create a site with and for youth impacted by the Juvenile Justice System. This means young people involved in or directly impacted by the Juvenile Justice System will receive experience, training, and leadership in philanthropy AND engage in the process of grantmaking to create solutions to the challenges identified by them.

By investing, your donation makes double the impact – both in the young people engaged in youth-led philanthropy as well as the communities and solutions they grant to.

Oh, and Youthprise will match dollar for dollar anything raised up to $10,000 so your gift goes even further! Will you help us meet our goal??

SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY AND CREATE A BETTER TOMORROW!
