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.

The summer enrichment program will supplement school-year instruction in STEM and writing for 80 low-income students. The ability to incorporate inquiry-based learning, leadership development, topical weekly field trips and writing to support STEM learning will provide a unique academic enrichment opportunity for selected students. The goal of SEEP is to provide measurable academic enrichment for participants, service-learning opportunities for college students and a structured volunteer program for professionals to mentor students in both STEM and writing. Through the nature of its curriculum, the summer enrichment program will address all seven of Washington state’s science content standards in daily classes. Pre- and post-assessments will be developed based on the state’s related performance expectations and it is predicted student participants in the program will show appreciable and measurable growth in their inquiry based science knowledge and skills.

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.

While hippotherapy and therapeutic riding are extremely effective, that effectiveness comes at a great cost. A one-hour session costs $60 - $200, fees not covered by most insurance companies. In some instances, Medicaid will cover hippotherapy, but not the more advanced therapeutic riding. Hardly any policies cover the barn fees charged to house, feed and care for the specially trained therapy horses ($100 / month). To someone in Tony’s situation, where there is a single reduced income and a pile of medical bills from his mother’s long-term illness, paying for these services out-of-pocket is inconceivable. Finding governmental subsidies are complicated and time-consuming for a struggling family. Where does this leave an ambitious young man who needs this therapy to become a productive member of society? That’s where Jacob’s Fund and Give For Youth step in. Together, we can raise the funds to continue therapy for Tony and others, making a lasting difference in these young people’s lives

Turning Street Smarts Into Business Smarts: NFTE Entrepreneurship Education
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

Give For Youth funding is critical to allow NFTE to provide the experiential components which deeply engage students in their learning. One of the key aspects of NFTE’s organizational structure is our network of eleven program offices spread throughout the country. This allows us to teach the NFTE course in a way that is tailored to local communities. Each classroom experience is unique, as each region has a different business market, community needs, and demographic trends. On Give For Youth, each NFTE office will be able to post projects that relate to their specific classroom needs. The crowd funding platform allows donors to connect with us by location or by the program they wish to affect. All business, and entrepreneurship, is local, and so are NFTE’s programs. Give For Youth’s platform makes funding local too.

Neighborhood House’s Youth Empowered with Leadership Strengths Program
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

Funding through the Give for Youth platform would dramatically enhance the capacity of the YELS program to provide youth with a robust curriculum, community service opportunities, captivating events and leadership training. The YELS program supports the low-income youth in the affordable housing community of High Point in West Seattle. These youth come from families that struggle with unemployment, limited English proficiency and low levels of formal education and don’t usually have access to enriching opportunities. YELS curriculum is guiding by our youth as we recognize that they have inherent potential as civic leaders and know that they are experts in their own experiences. Youth led initiatives and activities allow YELS youth to practice managing time and deadlines, working in diverse teams, building community in their neighborhood and leading their peers; ultimately developing the skills and confidence that has the potential to dramatically change their life trajectory.

Currently, we only have a handful of family and friends that support the efforts of our organization. We are focused this year on connecting with organizations and exploring ways of letting people know about our org and what we are doing. If we gain funding through the program, it would help us in areas such as getting equipment, renting or purchasing a facility, hiring local staff etc. It can also be a great way to expose our project to a wide range of prospective supporters.

Youth using Media to Change the Story of Community
Voting time hasn't begun.
Check back on [date]!

We are a youth led media organization. We have been in existence since the fall of 2011. We have existed as an unfunded movement with our young crew pouring their heart and soul into projects like the Geo Literacy Videos Series we are producing with a local girl-serving organization Young Women Empowered and the University of Washington. We use our own personal equipment, and borrow equipment through the University. We meet in coffee shops and where ever we can. We carry equipment on buses and light rails to make it happen at the ground level where our media happens. We need money to purchase equipment to improve our quality, a space to store our equipment and hold production meetings, and stipends to help our crew stay involved without starving. Funding will help us take this project from where it is today – to amazing.

The zoo relies heavily on donations from the community to maintain operations. The zoo receives no government funding to help further its goals. A majority of the zoo's funding goes towards the needs of the animals (food, habitat maintenance, bedding materials, etc). Funding gained through this project would allow the zoo to enhance its existing (and possibly future) educational programs and make them something memorable for people of all ages.

Support Seattle Underserved Youth Study Abroad in Morocco

Check back on [date]!

Your support in sending OWN Arabic language students to Morocco this summer would enable us to offer an immersive cultural experience and boost their language and leadership skills. Furthermore, it would promote our broader goal of creating the next generation of global leaders. Our program evaluations have demonstrated that one of the most significant areas of impact that OneWorld Now! has on a student’s life is their increased aspirations for higher education as well as their increased involvement in community service. OWN youth who study abroad are more engaged in global affairs and then tend to seek out additional international opportunities in college and beyond. OneWorld Now! is one of the nation’s leading organizations in providing access to study abroad opportunities to low-income and minority youth, who are sorely underrepresented in most study abroad programs.

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.
