The Multnomah Youth Commission’s Youth Against Violence Committee (YAV) is partnering with the Oregon Community Foundation to award five grants, up to $1000 each, for youth in Multnomah County to develop a youth-led project that addresses police violence or sexual/dating violence in their community. This is a unique opportunity for youth in schools, school clubs, after-school programs, and within organizations to put together a project proposal around police violence or sexual/dating violence that directly impacts them. The following criteria must be met in order to be considered: 

1. This application MUST be written BY YOUTH (ages 12-25)

2. The project must be LED by youth, as it is for youth.

3. Must address police violence or sexual/dating violence.

Applications are due Tuesday, February 16th by 11:59PM. You can apply online.
