Generations United Youth Jumpstart Grants
Deadline: October 30, 2013 (letter of inquiry)

This could be a great grant for a library teen advisory group to provide intergenational programming such as technology training.

Generations United, AARP's Mentor Up, and the MetLife Foundation are partnering to provide the 2013 – 2014 Youth Jumpstart grants to provide youth (ages 13-25) an opportunity to take a leadership role in a project that supports older adults while building strong, healthy intergenerational communities. 

Youth must partner with an organization for this grant. Jumpstart grantees will receive grants of $1,000, along with planning support to organize and implement successful and impactful projects. Although the grant dollars will go to organizations, the application must be completed by youth and the project planned and implemented by youth.

Grant Specifics: Up to 20 grants of $1,000 will be awarded along with technical assistance to develop or expand youth-led intergenerational projects. Applicants must be located in the U.S. and have a 501©3 or equivalent status. Youth development groups, national service grantees, Volunteer Centers, K-12 and higher education institutions are eligible to apply for this grant.
