Start-up youth centres that seek to provide at-risk youth with educational, occupational, shelter and counselling assistance can research grants that can finance these specific services. Applicants must meet the criteria set by some grant programs in order to qualify. Recipients may even have to match a percentage of the grant amount as a requirement. Whatever the demands, finding the right grant or partnering with the right sponsor can make all the difference in the success of your non-profit.

YouthBuild Grants

YouthBuild Grants finance programs that help kids who have dropped out of high school earn their GED and gain employment experience. Youths engage in community projects, such as rehabilitating and renovating homes for homeless and low-income families. They will also develop basic skills and receive educational training and referrals for social services. Eligible applicants include public and private non-profit organisations, state and local housing authorities and community and faith-based organisations. This nationwide program provides grants ranging from £455,000 to £0.7 million. For more information, contact:
