Grant Opportunities:
Youth WORK

What We Are Looking for

Projects we will support must create or increase work-based opportunities for young people (14-21).  These opportunities can be traditional jobs, paid or unpaid internships, job shadowing or apprenticeships over a period of time.  Priority will be given to applications that demonstrate the strongest potential to open doors for youth to the workforce and allow them the first rung on their career ladder.

The Foundation wants to put more young people to work to learn how to problem solve, use critical thinking and be able to demonstrate dependability and work ethic.  

The projects we seek to support must create or increase work-based opportunities for students enrolled in grades 8-12.  These opportunities can be traditional jobs, paid or unpaid internships, job shadowing or apprenticeships. They must last a minimum of four weeks.  

Priority will be given to applications that demonstrate the strongest potential to open doors for youth to the workforce and allow them the first rung on their career ladder through the job coach model.

Application Information

To meet the needs of the community during the coronavirus crisis, the Community Foundation of Broward may change our usual grantmaking process to get resources where they are needed the most as quickly as possible. As a result:

  1. Grant application guidelines and deadlines may be changed. Check this webpage for future grant application opportunities.
  2. Grants may be renewed or awarded based on pressing community needs, without an RFP process.
  3. Grant applications to fill targeted gaps in community services may be offered by invitation only, via email invitations.

For more information email Strategic Grants Manager, Angelica Rosas at arosas@cfbroward.org.
