Examples of grant proposals for youth centers

Youth are most at-risk for delinquent behaviour between the hours of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., according to the Chicago Youth Center. Youth centres provide positive options for out-of-school time and a safe place for youths to socialise and participate in educational and enrichment activities. A proposal for youth centre grants identifies the needs of youth in a given community, proposes a plan for meeting those needs and details a method for measuring the programme's outcomes for youth. Although funders usually award grants to support programmes and not the organisations, or youth centres, effective proposals define the organisation as the ideal community resource to provide the proposed programme.

Proposal for after-school youth programme

The 14-page proposal for the McKinleyville after-school programme begins with a table of contents and an executive summary. The proposal, which is in the form of a business plan, describes in detail the planned programme, including the need for the programme and explains that there are no similar programmes for McKinleyville Middle School youth. The proposal discusses the programme management and provides a list of measurable objectives and the evaluation process. It ends with a programme budget and statistics that support the need for the programme.

Computer programme sample proposal

Plugged In operates a community centre for youth and plans to begin a computer education programme. The proposal begins with a cover letter, an executive summary and a description of the organisation, which includes background, services provided and the population served. The proposal describes the work of the centre, explains the need for the computer program, and connects it to employment and education issues. The project description includes the grant amount requested, the program design and curriculum, objectives and measurement method, a budget, and key staff.

Youth language centre proposal

This 9-page proposal begins with a cover letter, describes the organisation requesting funds, and provides information about the need for the language centre and the proposed goals and objectives. It provides a detailed description of the language centre and the programme of English language activities, education and tutoring. The proposal also includes staffing details, a plan for evaluation and a budget.
