We 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:
- Affiliate Sustainability Grant: A total of $5,000 will be granted through this opportunity that encourages a focus on sustainability for our YVC programs. The deadline for this grant is 3/31.
- Don and Jean Sloan Scholarship: The $1,000 Don and Jean Sloan 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.
