The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) provides grants and capacity building supports to grassroots groups, community-based organizations and collaboratives focused on improving the wellbeing of children, youth, and families facing systemic barriers. YOF has three granting streams, each with a different purpose and aimed at different groups.
The Youth Innovations Stream invests in the work of grassroots groups that are youth-led or youth-adult partnerships by funding projects that test an idea or grow a successful project.
The Family Innovations Stream invests in the work of grassroots groups to test or scale culturally anchored projects that empower, support, and strengthen families.
The System Innovations Stream supports collaboratives that are strengthening the quality and responsiveness of systems so they work better for youth facing systemic barriers.
