Improving the lives of children,
youth and older adults through intergenerational collaboration,
public policies, and programs.
Generations United and MetLife Foundation are pleased to announce the 2013 Youth Jumpstart Grants designed to promote intergenerational solutions to societal challenges and build stronger communities.
Up to 10 grants of $1,000 will be awarded to organizations interested in developing youth-led intergenerational programs in their communities. Although the grants will go to organizations, the application must be completed by youth and the project planned and implemented by youth. This year, our priority will be funding technology programs and programs that help build strong, healthy communities.
In addition to the grants, the selected youth will receive expert support through phone calls, webinars, e-mail, and resource material and a scholarship to attend a youth leadership training and educational sessions at the Generations United 17th International Conference from July 29 – August 2, 2013 in Washington, DC.
Applications are due by May 24, 2013.
