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.
Please share this with interested youth, youth workers, teachers or other adult allies. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
