Youth Workforce Fund. May 2017. one-year grants of up to $250,000




Youth Workforce Fund


The Citi Foundation, in partnership with America’s Promise, is launching the Youth Workforce Fund, a competitive Request for Ideas (RFI) program that seeks to make strategic investments in non-profit community-based organizations connecting low- and moderate-income young people, ages 16-24, with workplace skills and employment opportunities including full-time jobs, internships, and apprenticeships. The $4 million competitive fund will award one-year grants of up to $250,000 to a cohort of grantees across 15 markets in the United States. The 15 markets are: Buffalo, NY; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Delaware; Florence, KY; Jacksonville, FL; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; Newark, NJ; New York City, NY; San Francisco, CA; Sioux Falls, SD; Tampa, FL; Tucson, AZ; Washington, D.C.

Given your organization’s commitment to youth economic opportunity, we invite you to submit an idea for consideration or help us spread the word to your networks.
 
The Fund is a part of the Pathways to Progress initiative. Led by the philanthropic efforts of the Citi Foundation, and strengthened by the active involvement of dedicated Citi volunteers, Pathways to Progress aims to help reduce youth unemployment around the world and improve the quality of the youth workforce.  Pathways to Progress launched in 2014 with a $50 million, three-year commitment that helped more than 100,000 young people, ages 16-24, to become career-ready.  In February 2017, the Citi Foundation announced a global expansion of the Pathways to Progress initiative led by a $100 million commitment to connect an additional 500,000 young people, ages 16-24, to training and jobs over the next three years.

The deadline to submit program ideas is June 27, 2017. Grant recipients will be announced this summer.

Sincerely, 

Brandee McHale
President, Citi Foundation
