Detailed Description

The Triangle Community Foundation is seeking applications for its “Our Impact: Education & Youth” that will focus on nonprofits in the Triangle serving youth ages 5-24, with a focus on youth from low-income backgrounds, youth from low-performing schools, youth with disabilities, youth with limited English proficiency, and youth of color.

Within this focus, they intend to concentrate on enabling and empowering youth leaders. They know that the future of their community depends on the strength of their future leaders. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, they recognize that leadership and community involvement must, unfortunately, take a backseat to the more immediate needs of their students, and they want to be a partner in supporting these needs.
