We’re the only national scholarship nonprofit supporting PIs with financial assistance and leadership development. Civic engagement is at the core of what we instill in our Scholars. Supporting PI-based students to attend our HES fosters leadership and professional competencies, and contributes to a vital need to cultivate a PI education and leadership pathway. PIs coming from meager means who demonstrate high potential for success often don’t have access to these opportunities. Without investment, a cycle of perpetuating inequitable outcomes for PIs is created. When the power of knowledge is recognized by the student, their voice becomes a catalyst for change. This is what happens at our HES: we create a platform for PIs to leverage their voice to translate personal experiences into a public issue. Support these students and you empower the next generation of PI leaders to create social change for their communities.

Through a spectrum of after-school activities and curricula, LIFE Humane Heroes Clubs will give today’s children a voice in the compassion movement, educate them about the value of the human-animal bond, and teach them how to advocate for real animals in need in their hometown communities. The programs of the LIFE afterschool program would also tie into the work AHA is doing to address the benefits of animal-assisted therapy on childhood cancer patients http://bit.ly/ccc-study. Gaining funding via Give For Youth would lend a powerful undercurrent of energy, attention and online engagement that could not be found elsewhere. It would also help integrate our efforts to educate and empower young people with larger networks of organizations, projects and initiatives doing similar work.

Baltimore Young Writers' Studio (aka sleepaway writing camp!)
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

In 2012, we funded the Writers' Studio by raising $5,300 through a Kickstarter campaign, after all local foundation funding requests were rejected. We were determined to see through the vision that we'd grown out of our previous 2-day writing studios. With foundation funding again scarce in Baltimore, we face a difficulty in doubling the length and capacity of our Studio. Funded gained through the Give For Youth platform would allow us to both expand the number of youth we can serve and enhance the Studio programming for these youth.

We are a grass roots program with very limited funding. We hope that by being able to cover the many costs associated with participating in triathlon we can involve young athletes from a broader range of backgrounds who may not necessarily get the opportunity otherwise. The funding would also allow us to bring in another coach to make sure that the kids get the attention they need.

Young African Coders To Conquer The Last Digital Frontier
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

Give For Youth is the perfect organization that should fund this project fore several reasons. First, because 95% of our target market is young people between the age of 17 and 25, which marries very well with Give For Youth's criteria. Second, we understood very early in our objectives that in order to spark economic development in Africa we must focus on human capital development of the youth. Young Africans represent the future of the continent therefore giving them the tools to solve problems locally as well as being able to compete globally is critical in this whole equation. Finally, Give For Youth has an interesting partnership with Microsoft YouthSpark which has actually influenced our interest to submit our project. Microsoft is one of the premier software companies in the World that we have ultimate respect for. And since our effort is geared towards creating an army of young software developers our participation to this competition just make sense.

We know what we're doing is important. Summer time is critical for food insecurity for children because school is closed and the lunch program is not available. The need for food however continues all year long. Specifically, weekends remain a problem because children don't have access to the school lunch programs. We would like to continue efforts all year long and additional funding will enable us to train more youth volunteers and expand our food drives.

The give for youth platform would be powerful for us in two ways: 1. The funding would allow us to begin the GOOD NEWS project with gusto. 2. The exposure to other youth through the platform could simultaneously help us scale up the project nationally by others starting their own local GOOD NEWS and joining The GOOD NEWS movement. Funding breakdown: 1. Allow us buy the equipment necessary to carry out this project with many different groups of youth in various local segregated poorer communities. 2. Develop a multimedia curriculum to foster visual literacy and technological access to video production. 3. Foster local partnerships to enhance the depth and breadth of both the program and its impact. 4. Teach and grow entrepreneurial reach of the project by teaching young people how to sell media content of the GOOD NEWS. 5. Produce and implement a multimedia launch for the community to cultivate greater community participation. 6. Develop a Youth Interactive GOOD NEWS website

Many students have a difficult time adjusting to a new school. Our students often face hardships at home. Norwood has a 70% free or reduced lunch rate. The camp assists the kids in being knowledgeable and capable to handle the changes and challenges that come their way. We currently do not have a way to pay for the 2013 Transition Camp. Funding from the Give For Youth Platform would help bring our vision for transition camp to a reality. We have done the camp for the past 5 summers and it has been extremely successful. On a post camp survey, last year 100% said they felt very or extremely knowledgeable about how to stay away from alcohol and drugs. 94% said they knew who to ask for help if they need it. The funding would be used to provide the students with the necessary skills to be successful for their futures. The funding would pay for camp materials, prizes, workshop providers, gift cards for older students who provide leadership, and quality speakers to make camp possible.
