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