Affiliate Grants

Western Connecticut - Summer 2014 - 2nd place contestWe know that having reliable funding is a huge factor for a successful youth service program, so we offer grants to our Affiliates as often as we can. 2016 was the biggest year ever for Affiliate grants, with more than $8,000 being awarded.

The following opportunities are currently open:

  • Rock Solid Projects Youth Volunteer Grant: $300 and $200 will be awarded to up to two affiliates based on applications from YVC youth volunteers. This grant will support rock solid building and construction-related projects created and led by youth volunteers. The deadline for this grant is 12/4.
  • YVC Cornerstone Grant: $20,000 will be granted to up to five affiliates through this opportunity that encourages an increase in impact through YVC programs. The deadline for this grant is 12/20.

The following grants have been awarded in 2017:

  • Affiliate Sustainability Grant: A total of $5,000 was granted through this opportunity focused on sustainability for our YVC programs. YVC of Hampton Roads, VA was granted $2,000 to help support their monthly giving campaign: Give 10, Help 10. YVC of Danbury was granted $3,000 to help support YVC staffing.
  • Don and Jean Sloan Scholarship: This year’s scholarship recipient was XianHui Zhang, a youth volunteer of YVC of Philadelphia. This $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a YVC Youth Volunteer who has demonstrated a passion for service. Applications are available from February 1 to April 30 each year.

The Fine Print: Only active YVC Affiliates in good standing are eligible for Affiliate Grants, meaning Affiliate is not overdue on any fees or dues payments, data collection, or reports/timesheets for YVC or AmeriCorps (as applicable). All youth who have served with YVC are eligible for the Don and Jean Sloan Scholarship regardless of Affiliate standing.
