As a newer non profit we want to be able to use the funds to help our students develop fundraising projects of their own. Books, like everything else, take funding. The kids that we bring the books to have few if any other options. We see this money as being the seed for our new projects - something that we can build into something bigger!

Break Away is a national nonprofit, although only has three staff. Break Away manages relationships with our chapter schools and 400+ community partners. Additionally, Break Away holds trainings for student and staff leaders, along with other programs, that move the active citizen movement forward. Therefore, Break Away is not able to give these types of grants to programs without additional support. This grant will let Break Away encourage colleges to send more trips focused on education. Education is currently the fourth most common social issue schools focus on during alternative breaks, committing over 37,000 hours of service last year. Break Away’s goal is that these programs focusing on education develop stronger service and meaningful interactions with students. This funding will let Break Away encourage colleges to not just send education focused trips; it will encourage them to send trips that can be a real part of a plan to improve school environments and student education.

Additional funding for Tuan’s Music School would allow us to purchase more instruments for our students who currently are sharing violins. Funding would also allow us to provide professional instruction to Tuan, our teacher. Funding for our Dream of Art School project would allow us to continue to purchase art supplies and paper. It would also provide us with the ability to provide local school art teachers with supplies for 300 children. Since the start of our programs a small student community has been built around the art and music programs. Kids are coming together and spending time in an environment outside of their very strict and rigid school lives and often very difficult home situations. Funding for our projects will help us to continue to expand and reach more children.

Funding through Give for Youth would provide crucial financial support to these projects, covering essential costs including student transportation, admission to cultural and educational institutions, stipends for participants, and high-quality staffing. Global Kids staff members are highly skilled educators with extensive training and experience in youth development and international education. An important element of Global Kids’ approach is the role of our staff as mentors, who provide personal support to youth who often do not receive it at home or in the classroom. These nurturing relationships are key to Global Kids’ success: they build students’ self-confidence, help them improve academically, and empower them to take control of their lives and make positive choices for themselves.

As critical as funding to the Foundation is to support the ChalleNGe program, it is equally important to support the Foundation’s work to ensure that the graduates remain on track. Upon completion of the program, the Foundation puts its funding to work by providing: a. Scholarships to help program graduates continue their education in college, vocational programs or career training; and b. Career development, including internships, job placement and ongoing contact and support.

Camp Shout Out: Youth Who Stutter

Stuttering is a disorder that affects up to 5% of all school age children. When surveyed more than 70% of speech-language pathologists indicated that they were not as comfortable or confident working with children who stutter as they were with other disorders. The majority did not know how to teach most common stuttering modification techniques and did not know how to contact a fluency specialist for consultation. Children who stutter are often mislabeled as unintelligent or having a nervous disorder. A recent survey by the National Stuttering Association (NSA) reported that 80% of children who stutter had been bullied and/or teased and 40% of adults who stutter had been denied a job or promotion because of the speech disorder. If we gain funding through the Give For Youth platform we would be able to not only reach more young people either directly or through their speech-language pathologist, we would also be able to educate the public about stuttering.

This funding would allow us to continue to provide our Be A Leader Clubs with the capital and resources needed to provide its member with meaningful college access activities. For a majority of our students, the clubs are their only source of motivation and guidance when it comes to navigating the college-going process. Funding would provide the continued implementation of activities such as our College and Professional Shadow Weeks, College Visits, and transportation to monthly college-going workshops. Each of the monthly college-going workshops is provided through our Be A Leader Institute High School (BLIH) program. The BLIH curriculum provides students with the knowledge to access information on the resources available, application process and financial requirements involved with getting a college education. With your support, the norm amongst our students will become one of college preparedness with an expectation to achieve a post-secondary education.

Gaining funding through the Give for Youth platform would better able the AALEAD Youth Council and our program participants to put on the 2nd Annual APA Youth Summit by fully-equipping them to plan a bigger and better event for the community and the community’s youth. The selection itself would empower and embolden our youth to know that there is a bigger community outside of them that believes in their potential. With the funding, our youth would be able to secure a larger venue, expand on their previous marketing plan, invite speakers and performers from out of the region and overall, raise the bar from the previous year’s summit. This funding will allow our staff and youth to create and provide a high quality event that will impact our program youth, community youth and community at-large.

We be able to hire some of NYC's brightest and most compassionate teaching artists who would be able to raise the level of ensemble work.

We have successful partnerships with over 40 schools and corporations throughout NYC but would like to expand the program by using the capacity-building supports to further develop marketing materials to present to key stakeholders including principals, teachers, guidance counselors, human resources professionals, employee resource groups or affinity groups at corporations. We would also like to further develop our program by creating lesson plans for each session, with various activities for Littles in each grade to coincide with their development and schoolwork. This will enable the program to be more easily replicated, and goals would include aligning the curriculum more fully with the NYS Core Standards for high school youth, and developing tools and ideas for recruiting more young men of color into the program. With funding, BBBS of NYC will be poised to recruit more corporate and school partners in order to serve more NYC youth.

From collecting canned goods for disaster victims to creating care kits for shelters, young people who engage in service can play a valuable role in their communities by volunteering their time, creativity, and energy to help people in need. Youth who engage in service grow up to be more empathetic and community-involved and their achievement in school often improves. By gaining funding through Microsoft’s Give for Youth, generationOn would be able to reach and engage thousands of new middle and high school kids in service, targeting low-income students who often have fewer opportunities to participate in community; in addition, we would be able to provide our resources to more youth across the economic spectrum, allowing them to learn 21st Century skills - such as critical thinking and problem solving, creativity, communication and collaboration - necessary to succeed in the future.

Workshops  in Music Recording & Video Production for the Neediest Youth of Los Angeles
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

Funding through the Give For Youth platform would allow us to implement these five Music Production and Video Production workshops by providing stipends for reputable professionals in audio recording and video production so they can lead the programs. This money would also allow us to purchase musical instruments like guitars and keyboards, plus video cameras and additional equipment to enhance the quality of the workshops. Funds will also be used to supplement the programs with group outings to artistic and cultural events that are of high-quality and relevance to the discipline of each workshop (e.g., tickets to concerts or film screenings). There are additional costs for copies of screenplays, telephone and Internet, snacks and drinks for all the kids, and more overhead costs. We also need to improve the sound quality in the recording booth, which involves buying expensive materials for acoustic insulation.

Our Breaking Par program will provide over 120 hours of programming opportunities in the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Young people will have the chance to experience many wonderful moments filled with learning necessary, every day skills, laughter, and most of all, having fun. The annual fee for our program is $495 per youth. We don’t want to turn any young people away because of an inability to pay. If we were to gain funding through the Give For Youth platform, young people, who may not have been able to participate without the support of a scholarship, would be given the opportunity to play and learn through the game of golf.
