We advocate for durable, equitable and sustainable funding for the youth development sector.

Thriving organizations are fully funded to ensure living wage jobs for their employees, sufficient and updated infrastructure (space, technology, and materials), and the full cost of doing business as a not-for-profit. We advocate to ensure a diverse range of youth-serving nonprofits have the infrastructure and resources needed to provide high quality, identity affirming, strengths-based supports for young people.

Why advocacy?

We engage in advocacy in order to bring awareness to the cross-cutting issues that affect young people, build public will to ensure stable and equitable funding for high-quality directive service programming to support young people to reach their full potential.
